My heart hurts a little today. I'm going to miss this amazing, independent, spirited little boy every minute that I am away from him. But I know that missing him will only make the time we do have together that much more special. For I have plans, oh yes, grand plans . We'll be building forts, having picnics for dinner at the park, dancing in the gazebo at a kids' concert, taking daily post-dinner tricycle rides and creating general merriment all around us. Life as we know it may be changing but that doesn't mean it has to stop.
Noah, I want you to know that your daddy and I made this decision because we know it will help provide you with the best life possible. I have loved (almost) every minute of being home with you these past (almost) two years and wouldn't trade it for the world. This is our next chapter, as a family, and we are going to rock it. YOU are going to rock it. I will miss you so very much, little man, but at 5:30 pm, everyday, I will be there to pick you up from daycare. And until you get embarrassed by it, I will scoop you up and snuggle you. I am first and foremost your mommy and I will never forget that.
Ok. Now I'm ready to go kick some corporate ass. In a pencil skirt and heels.
