Blog Hiatus

It's been so long since I posted, that I almost felt as if I should just give up the whole thing! Big news for some, but I've joined the baby train! and it was a huge decision that I've been battling for years. Why? I'm not sure - but a lot of the uncertainty comes from nannying for so many years and seeing how families work from a deep inside. I had to come to the realization for me, that some families that hire nannies hire them as a band-aid, and we take on a lot, both physically and mentally. This is cleary and entirely from my perspective with the families that I have nannied for, and is not the opinion or situation of all nannies! Nor is it the case for all the families I've cared for, I've been lucky with some (most of the early ones), unlucky with some.

It's been so hard to concentrate or sit in one place for too long, since I've had morning, noon and night sickness and I work mainly 9 hour days with no break. So needless to say I'm sleeping a lot! I'm starting to feel better these last few days and luckily, I have the most amazing husband who has done nothing but be 100% supportive of everything that comes flying our way. We are both so excited for this ride, that we are having the best time together and just wish to hide out from the world and enjoy every moment. I'm also so lucky to have a mother and sister who will let me call them a million times a day and never make me feel like I'm taking over the conversation, only reassuring me that everything is going to be okay. phew

So there it is! I'm thrilled, excited, and sometimes a little scared of this new adventure, but can't wait to see what every little moment brings. I'm starting to get back into the world of crafting, and wanted to start on a macrame owl plant holder....big project? ridiculous? or mind consuming!? Anyways, more crafting to begin again and more posts to follow.
