“Forced change is good” said an old colleague. And he’s right. Finally, my company’s acquisition led to job elimination and as it turns out, I already have a job! I’m staying home to be “Mommy” to my two boys (4 1/2 and 2) and have already found that life is different in many ways, but still the same. I work longer hours and make less money, but now my titles include COO, CFO, VP, Creative Director, HR Manager, Head Chef, Marketing Manager . . . you get the picture.
My primary responsibility appears to be organizing. Schedules. Activities. Meals. Playdates. Parties. Gear. Closets. A never-ending list of To Do’s. But it’s great! I’ve discovered a renewed source of energy and an appreciation for the little things that I was missing while I was at the office. My boys are hilarious and test my patience daily, but as Darius Rucker sings “it won’t be like this for long.”
And while I have all this “free” time, I am exploring my options. What is my next move? What do I want to be when I grow up?
