One year ago today I quit my job and got three different ones. A year ago I was an architect. Now I'm an architect, childcare provider and product designer/business owner.
I went from one boss to three. Granted, two of those bosses are two years old and the adult one is self-admittedly a little wack-a-doodle. Even if he is nuts, I love my 3rd boss. He's demanding and hard to work with, but he is one of the most fair people I've ever met. He's never lied to me, and that's very important.
I know it is a hard decision for a lot of women to decide to stay at home after having kids, but what about if we stopped thinking so black and white? I've made my own crazy work/life situation and am pretty happy. Maybe more employers would be open to different situations if more women pushed for them?
It's mind-boggling to think that last year at this time Franca had just started walking and now she's running around (in a cast) singing the spiderman theme song.
So cheers to the best decision I've ever made, and fingers crossed for another terrific year!
