I did it. I just clicked the "send" button. And that concludes me officially resigning from my position at the hospital in order to be a SAHM (stay at home mom). I had dreamed of this moment before but I never realized how truly and deeply sad I would feel. It feels like a loss.
I am glad I can stay home with Claire, but I truly am going to miss my job. There is a time for everything, however and the time to move on from my job has come.
