My husband and I decided in December of 2011 that we were really ready to add a member to our little family of 2. We were blessed with our precious “Bubsy” on October 3, 2012, and at the time, I was still convinced that I would never, ever, ever, be a stay-at-home mom- not only because we couldn’t afford it, but also, admittedly, because I just didn’t think I was cut-out to do so. Maternity leave only proved me right! But more on that later. Time went by and some pretty eye-opening events happened (again more on that later) and here I am- about 5 weeks away from beginning my crazy new life of a stay-at-home mom.
