Industry Education
Occupation Stay at home mama
Location MA, United States
Introduction Thanks for checking out my blog! I am a first time mom in my early 30s who has taken on the adventure of being a stay at home mom to my son Jac, born in June 2010. I'm a driven, task oriented, former business world professional... and more recently special education teacher... who was laid off at the end of my pregnancy. Though it seemed frightening at the time, getting laid off has illuminated itself as a major blessing in disguise as I am now finding my way through what has turned out to be the ultimate career for me: being Jac's mom. Financially, I'm not sure how long this stay at home mom opportunity will last, so I'm dedicating this blog to examining the experience of being a full time Jac's mom, and to exploring this stay at home world with my son... a world that I thought I knew and understood, but now realize is a layered, fascinating, and blurred experience which I wade through in this new life of mine.
