How has it been nearly a year since Fritter was born? Where did the time go?
I have spent the last month or two slowly gearing back up to work mode, because in a month I am going to have to go back into the world of unmet expectations and absolutely no down time which is the life of the working mother.
I don’t wanna.
I don’t want my cuddly baby to get bigger.
I don’t want to leave her at daycare because she has some stranger issues (which I will discuss at some point).
I don’t want the stress of having to meet people’s expectations, avoid judgement, etc.
I don’t want to lose the hour and a half of down time I get every day during Fritter’s morning nap while Owl is at school.
I don’t want any of it. I LIKE maternity leave.
But, since it isn’t a choice, what I really want is to get my dog training business going, and going HARD. Because training dogs pays between 40 and 70 dollars an hour and working at the vet clinic… doesn’t. Also because it’s one of my life dreams, along with being an author.
