That Mommy Lady

Heartfelt Humor and Views on Modern Motherhood

First Times and Last Times

Remember that song that goes "every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end"? That's basically my life today. After almost a decade as a TV news producer, today is my last day on the job. Which means tomorrow is my first day as a stay-at-home mom. 

It feels a bit surreal to say that. It's not something I was planning or expecting when I got pregnant, or even once I had Emmeline. But being a full-time working mom is incredibly hard, especially when you have an insane schedule and a baby who's not overly fond of sleeping. It just wasn't working for our family, and the choice needed to be made. Starting this new phase of our life is both exciting and terrifying. Much more to come on this, obviously.

To help keep us busy this summer, Emmeline and I are signed up our first "Mommy, Music, and Me" class today! It's also both exciting and terrifying. Wish us luck on our new adventures!
