So I fell off the face of the earth for a bit, fear not, I’m back! After a ton of back and fourth between Adam and I, we finally decided I should leave my job and care for the kids at least for a year until Charlie goes to preschool which will be next fall. It was an incredibly difficult decision as I’ve been working since I was 15 and I don’t know any other way. I’ve always wanted to stay home and care for my kids and thankfully I finally got the opportunity. It will be difficult but I know it will be for the best. Don’t get me wrong, I’m completely terrified but I’m keeping positive. So after my maternity leave, I basically went back to work to give my resignation. Being a chef and having three kids is no joke! Adam is in Nashville for work and I’ve been home manning the home front. It was crazy those couple weeks going to work, rushing home and trying to get everything done for the kids. I was so sad leaving my team behind. You go from seeing a group of people more than your family, they end up turning into your family away from home. I remember when I first started working with this team. There was a ton of push back and I did the only thing I knew how to do, roll up my sleeves, sharpen my knife and get to working along side them. Soon enough they warmed up to me and evolved into the best team in the department. I’m so proud of them! I know I have lifelong friends in them.
So since you last heard not too much has happened. Logan started soccer. Funny story, about that. Every season the kids get to choose their team name, the coach came over to announce the team had named themselves The Executioners. LOL The parents were cracking up but the coach was a bit hesitant. I thought it was hilarious and even contemplated making a death metal mix tape for the kids to practice to. After the game, the coach decided to vote again since he felt it wasn’t an appropriate name for the team. They went with The Mini Spurs. I’m really excited to have more time to share with you guys and spend more time with my little ones, their only babies once and I can’t wait to make these memories.
