Exciting News from the Fitts’ Household

No, I am not pregnant! Today is my last day with my current company. I am going to be a Stay at Home Mommy!! I am so excited I can hardly stand it. This is something that I have wanted for a very long time and with the close of my current contract and all the uncertainties at my job we decided this was the perfect time. I have been with this company since I got out of college (years not to be included). I started out in VA and then they moved me to NC. I have no complaints or grips (I have already gotten those off my chest) I just needed to reprioritize things and my family comes first! When I look into my kids eyes I know I am making the right decision!!

Lawson will be going to a pre-school program 3 days a week at a local church. It is 1 mile away from the house!! She is ecstatic to start her new school. We have been buying her new clothes for the new school and in her very girly way she says “When am I going to my new school, I want to wear my new clothes?”

Wes, he has no clue. He has just started the separation anxiety stage. When I drop him off and I start to walk away he will start waving his arms and start grunting. Then try to crawl towards me as fast as he can!! It is heart breaking! I guess I will be able to avoid those day now! At least for a little while!

As for me, I have wanted this since Lawson was born. I use to be a hard-core career girl. For now, I just want to be a mom. I still have that career girl in me but right now she needs to stay idle and concentrate on her family. As I see it according a stay-at-home mom’s salary would be $134,121, if given a salary. If I keep that in mind I am getting a nice raise. However, instead of it being in dollars it will be in kisses, hugs, viewing milestones first, and lots of other wonderful bonuses!!

So what does that mean for the blog now that I can’t use company time to blog? (hehe- like I am doing now!!) I will try my best to keep it updated. I am sure I will find time (maybe). I like blogging. It is therapeutic for me. I have always been a journal writer (even though my writing stinks). So I don’t see me completely stopping, I just don’t see my posts being as frequent.

Wish us luck!!!

Being a stay-at-home Mommy is wonderful. And you'll love it. Be sure you have other Mommies and friends who you can do things with. You may find that you crave 'adult' interaction. As for the blog- for sure you'll find the time!!! You'll have just as many great moments you'll want to share. :)
