Or as I’ve been saying a lot lately.. I love the idea of my job.
When I am away from work, I miss it. (a little..) but I think of it in a good way..
While I’m there I always wish I was somewhere else..
But overall.. I love my job!
Me loving my job was one of the biggest reason I was able to keep my pregnancy a secret for so long, nobody thought I would get pregnant because they know I love my job too much.
Since we’ve had the baby Aaron and I have been splitting the work day.
I go to work from 7am to 1pm and he brings the baby and meets me at work at 1 then he works till 6…
Sorta… It wasn’t really enough money.. and I was falling behind.. FAST! My boss asked me daily when I’d be back to work full time and my answer was always.. I don’t know..
Meanwhile, I could have stayed at work for 12 hours a day to get caught up and Aaron dreaded coming in to work. The whole 5 hours he was there I received text message after text message about how much he missed little guy.. and asking how we were..
I finally broke down and told my boss one day that if he wanted me to be at work, he’d have to pay me both of our salaries combined, and Aaron would stay home if he could promise Aaron would have a job back if our situation ever changed..
He answered with a hmmmm..
And I dropped it..
Enter 2 weeks ago..
I was called to his office and he asked me if it was alright to offer Aaron a new position with no set office hours! Which means he could basically stay at home most of the time. He would keep his current salary and would only need to come in if something needed taken care of that couldn’t be done from home.
(I too find it funny that he asked me before offering it to him!)
Unfortunately, we are in the cutting cost mode and we needed to lay some people off so 2 jobs were consolidated into one, and Aaron handles both!
It was our dreams (and prayers) come true!
So in a nut shell.. Aaron has a new boss..at home.. He is A LOT more demanding then his old one.. but he also has way better benefits.. :) Although he also comes with a lot of dirty diapers!
I am now back at work full time and can breath a huge sigh of relief…
Even though our boss (the one at work.. not at home!) can be a really pain in the neck sometimes.. I am really grateful to have a boss that understands the importance of family and takes care of us like we are all his family. I am also grateful to have a boss that has a lot of insight and seems to be really intuitive to our needs…
As for Aaron.. His new boss is the best boss he could ever have.. and his new job is the best promotion he could ever get!
He makes an amazing stay at home dad.. Him and little guy are the best of buds.. And I wouldn’t change that for the world!
The first daddy and little guy picture ever! (Who is that baby?? I don’t even recognize him anymore!)
Aaron hates this picture because of the way he’s holding him.. but its very fitting for our first 2 weeks!
Doing his daddy duties…
I am so proud of Aaron for taking this new responsibility. I know I was not cut out to be a stay at home mom. It’s so hard and I respect him so much for selflessly taking on the task of raising our son. I love him so much for loving us enough to do this..
I am so excited that they will be such great friends because of this…
And the best thing about working full time……
coming home to this every night!
