Everything is working out

Everyone knows the exciting news about Logan and I buying a new home and that we are expecting a little one here shortly. In order for our little family to live comfortably you have to make sacrifices. At first, I was planning on not working and just staying home to take care of Little Miles while Logan was off at work, but then we realized that we need to buy a home and that would cost us. So, I had to make a decision... I either stay home with Miles and live in a small one bedroom apartment until Logan makes enough or I work and have family watch Miles while I'm at work.

I decided that I would work to help out with the money and plus that would take a lot of stress off my wonderful husband. Sadly, I was giving up one of the most important things to me, time with my little one. :( At first it didn't bother me, because I would only be working 32 hours a week, but recently I started feeling the pain of leaving my little one in the care of others (not that I don't trust my family) because I would not be able to spend that precious time with Miles. I started thinking that I might miss a lot of those big special moments, like the first smile, when he rolls over, starts crawling, etc.  I started to feel a great lose. Then one day at work, the thought popped in my head. "What if I did work for the office at home?!" The more I thought about it the more I felt that I should ask my dad and Jackie if it was possible. 

Soooo... I did and well, apparently there is something I can do at home. YAYAYA!! Everything is working out perfectly. Now I will be able to work and take care of my baby. I'm so happy. :)
