Ch-ch-changes

It's hardly a secret how fond I am of my very first and favorite spouse, the Anonymous Husband, our resident baby daddy and breadwinner. On that breadwinner note, I'm thrilled to announce that he's given notice at his current BigLaw position to tackle a shiny, fantastical new opportunity. I won't presume to speak for him - that might detract from my quest to goad him into this magical social media kingdom, for starters - but from my perspective alone, I'm hopeful this move will provide a happy, satisfying challenge for him and more time together as a Pretty family for us.

When I'm not busy being chirpily supportive about all this, I'm secretly a little terrified . . .  remember back when we talked about the Grown-Up Decisions that make you realize you're an capital "A" adult? At the risk of sounding too Smug Parent-y, changing jobs back when we were carefree singletons or DINKs was one thing; doing it now when there's one income and a wee CEO's college tuition at HarvarYaleOxforDartmouth to fund is entirely another. Gulp.

Risk-taking is part of this whole life thing, apparently, and so I'm thrilled to have hitched my Target-clad wagon to someone whom I can trust to know when the right time is to leap. If I've learned anything in my thirty-three years, it's to surround myself with people more talented than myself in hopes it somehow rubs off on me or at least makes me look better by association. If I've failed in everything else, I got that right with my favorite baby daddy here:


So please bear with me if I embrace some fluffiness in the coming days - there's a hard-hitting feature on Mom Hair en route, for example - while I endeavor to take this all in. My conservative self needs a bit to absorb even shiny, fantastical changes, except when said shiny arrives in the form of, say, a Tiffany blue box. Work hard at that fancy new job, Anonymous Husband.

Congratulations to AH. However, I am staging a comment rebellion round here until you start to include PRINCETON in Mr. P's future college tuition dreams:). Old Nassau rules.
