“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change -”
There is so much going on in our lives right now. Amelia will be starting Kindergarten in August and just yesterday I gave my resignation to my day job. In 3 weeks my life I'll be walking a tightrope.
I've always been the dependable one, never took a leap without having a landing pad, but this time I don't know what will happen. I know that I'll keep my Macaroni Kid Shreveport-Bossier website but beyond that who knows.
I want to be there for Amelia when she starts school, things are different from when I was a kid. Even though my mother stayed home it seems that today parents need to be more involved with their kids activities, bullying is at the worst that I've ever seen but it's proven that if a parent is around that it is less likely to happen. So while women are being told to "lean in", I'm ready to lean out. I want to be there when she gets home to do homework, I want to be a class Mom and PTA member, I want them to know that I'm going to fight for my child's education.
Someone said that if I can afford it that it's great--the thing is that I really can't, that's what makes this even more of a leap for me. I'm stepping into the unknown. I'll still make some money off of Macaroni Kid advertising and hopefully be able to focus on it even more but it's going to be a tough (and very financially poor) road. I hope to get some contract work along the way and I know that I'll stay busy, I'm not a sit and home and eat bon-bons type of girl--regardless of what my weight tells you. : )
This is a road that I must take, for myself and for my daughter. We'll see where the road takes us.
