Happy Un-Labor Day

One year ago this weekend I resigned from my general counsel job to stay at home with Master P. I feel like I'm supposed to say that it was a difficult decision. Sure, there were parts of my New Normal I struggled to accept, not the least of which was losing my ego-boosting job title, and I've had my moments since when I've questioned the decision.

In the end,  however, every bit of me wanted to be here to see every bit of messy this grow up. I still do, truth be told:

The irony of this wonderful shot is that the Anonymous Husband took it yesterday when I wasn't actually home.

One year later, I can say this without reservation - it is a joy to finally be doing something I love, even on the days when it isn't.

One of my best friends, a fellow escapee lawyer turned stay-at-home-mom, and I have taken to wishing one another a Happy Un-Labor Day. That's a misnomer, of course - we would more accurately refer to it as "Re-Labor Day" or "More Labor Day" - but the sentiment remains the same. 

Happy Un-Labor Day, darlings. May your last day of seersucker'd summer be a fine one, and all that other sentimental clap-trap.
Lest you think this is one of those suspiciously ideal, "Look at my perfect child in monogrammed jon-jon!" posed shots, please note the battle wounds on Master P's darling face from his rumble with our rock garden.

Master P is so cute in his monogrammed outfit!

My sister is saying that she's going to take 6 months maternity leave but I think she may join your lawyer turned SAHM club. I guess we'll see!

I am resigning this week! Going to the office tomorrow and heading back out sometime before the week is over. I'm incredibly anxious and nervous, any advice you have is appreciated.

And this is exactly how I feel about my four months with her so far..."it is a joy to finally be doing something I love, even on the days when it isn't." I honestly never thought I'd like this mommy business so much!
