Mondays tear me up. More accurately, they tear me down.
I always knew I would be a stay-at-home mom, and immediately after giving birth to my first child, I decided that I never wanted to return to teaching. Our original family plan was to head back to the classroom when our first child entered kindergarten, putting our second child in full day daycare around the age of three. Once I became a mom, even the thought of dropping off my child at 6:45 every morning and picking him up at 5:00 every evening made me physically ill. It turned out that our two kid plan worked perfectly, but I was not built for the rest of the plan. I decided to change course. No, I jumped ship altogether.
When I felt the “return to work” date approaching, I threw a Hail Mary pass and created this blog. There was no way I could have guessed that a fledgling freelance writing career would develop into a marketing and professional writing business. Suddenly instead of throwing desperate passes, I was juggling.
