I officially told my boss today that Big Red and I decided I'd be staying home once the baby comes. I was nervous telling Pat as my dad made it seem like she was depending on me to retire. His dream was that she'd retire and I'd take her place.
Anyway, I told her and she was 100% supportive. It went something like this:
"Pat, Big Red and I decided that I'm going to stay home after the baby's born."
"Good! I think you should! Especially if you're going to have more than one kid."
She proceeded to tell me that I can always come back when I want to be with adults again.
So, praise God THAT's taken care of and went as good as it did!
