I’ve been lucky enough to be able to work from home for the last two years with my baby, oops, now toddler. Its been great but my industry is experiencing a tough time and I’m not 100% sure my company will pull through. At first I was panicked and sad at the thought of having to ship my boy off to full time daycare, which is what will have to happen. But its ended up being a blessing in disguise. I now treasure every moment we’re together and take delight in the simplest things. Like sitting together on the back step shelling pistachios watching a bird dance on the fence. Sometimes I take things for granted and its nice to have a reminder to stop and appreciate them.

  • I too get to work from home, it’s awesome to be able to see each new thing my daughter does, it’s a temporary role for me so I too am cherishing every moment


  • It’s great to appreciated the smaller things.


  • Maybe you could work part time and still have time with your child. Great story.


  • Really nice story. Work at home and also can spend every great moment with your son.


  • you r so lucky working from home.


  • So true, We do take so much for granted, sometimes we need these little reminders of what is really important to us and that we need to take time out to just sit and play with our children :)


  • It is such a blessing to be able to watch your kids grow up and you do start appreciating all the little things! I go back to work soon and after having 2 years off I am feeling the same way! Cherishing every moment xxxx
