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.
