The people I work for are amazing and care very much about me as I do them--We are more like family. So I know it was hard for them to cut my hours about 2 weeks ago but I have to admit I am loooovvvving it!!! I now leave work in time to pick up my boys from school when before I worked until 5:00 everyday. Those 2 extra hours added to my day are the best!
I enjoy the extra time spent on the playground after school visiting with other moms and watching our children play with each other and look for turtles :).
Sitting and doing homework while having an after school snack.
Going home to make dinner without the pressure of having it on the table in less than 10 minutes because if I don't everyone will "just die of starvation".
It's only 2 extra hours a day, but it means so much more than that--I am closer to being the stay at home mom I dream about.
