The time has come

I had originally planned on working as long as Hayden was still snug in my tummy or unless my dr. put me on bed rest but Schuyler has been bugging me for a week or so now to stop before she is born.

The thought of stopping work early on my own accord has been a hard one for me to swallow. You see with Skyler I worked until the day I went into labor, actually going into labor during my lunch break. Yes, calling to boss to announce that even though I just saw him 45 minutes ago when everything was fine and dandy to tell him that I was now in full blown labor and would not be back for 3 months was a bit weird. Then with Madison my dr. put me on bed rest 2 weeks early, then induced a week early. But this time around I am a bit older, have 2 other kiddos at home who getting ready each and every morning to be taken to school and daycare, then taking care of them and the house in the evening while I am this huge and miserable is not what I call fun.

So I think I have finally given in to Schuyler....I decided that this Wednesday (1.5 week before due date) will be my last day at work (unless Hayden has her own plans and come sooner) and will start my maternity leave. Now...before you get all excited....I am so anal about payroll that I have promised work that I would do payroll from home after taking off a full 2 weeks once Hayden is born.

Skyler will be getting out of school for the Summer Thursday so I have to admit that it will be nice to be able to be home for a few days or so with Skyler and Madison before Hayden does come.
