And because that’s how we feel, I’ve come to the (tough) decision to stay home from work.
It’s not tough from the aspect that I can’t get enough of my daughter. But it is tough from the standpoint that I love my job. I love being involved and telling people’s stories. But after a couple of months back at work since Cate’s birth and six weeks home with her, it’s really more important for me to be involved with her and tell her story. Greg and I don’t want to send her to kindergarten and wonder why we spent the first five years of her life shuffling her back and forth and passing each other in the process.
So my last day as a newspaper reporter will be Sept. 14, but I’m trading my pen and paper for what I’m sure will be the greatest profession possible: a full-time mama.
