I work from home in a job that I love.
The company I work for is having some trying financial times. They've asked me to take a manditory 3 month maternity leave. Because I work for a small business, we don't get any paid vacation days so all 3 of these months is going to be unpaid. Part of me is thrilled because we're starting home schooling this year, and having the new baby and being able to concentrate on just those two things. Part of me is terrified because I'm going 3 months without a paycheck. I'm trying to just look at it as a gift from God that I'm going to have uninterupted time with my kiddos, and trust that He'll work out the financial side of life.
I'm getting so excited to meet this little person! Nora, my 4 year old, grabbed my belly yesterday and yelled, "Baby! This is your sister Nora! You need to come out so that I can see your face!" I couln't have said it better myself ha ha! She wants a baby sister so bad. I tried to tell her that she already has a baby sister, but that didn't seem to make a difference. Leah wants a little brother so bad, and I think Lydia wants a cat. Needless to say, 2 out of the 3 are going to be disapointed ;-)
