Getting the Swing of Things~

It's been a bit over five years since I have taken on the role of Mom.   I think I am finally getting the hang of it.  Now when I  hear "Hey Mom," I actually turn my head and respond.  Maybe five years seems like a long time, but I never said I was bright, just good looking.
When I made the decision to quit my job as a Marketing and PR Goddess and take on the role of SAHM, I had no clue what I was getting into.  The decision, which is obviously a biggie, was not thought out one bit.  
It was a Friday and I was stuck in traffic on my way home from work.  I called my Hubby and said, "Would you be cool with me not going back to work on Monday?"  It took him by surprise, but he said if that's what I really wanted then go for it.  And the decision was made.  I know it was a totally unprofessional way to quit a job, but the company I was working for had been treating me unprofessionally ever since I returned from my Maternity leave.  Call it Karma if you will, but they deserved my no-notice quit and the nasty email I sent to my boss.
Lots of you know I had a hard time at first.  I never saw myself as a SAHM and trading in the suits for the sweat pants was a tough transition for me.  But I am so thankful that things worked out the way they did.  
So now that my oldest is going to be entering Kindergarten and my youngest is going into Preschool, and I wonder where the time has gone.  It is so cliche to say, but they really do grow up fast.
