The day is finally here. Goodbye Director of Marketing, hello Chief Mom Officer!
I can’t believe the time has come. I can’t believe I have chosen to forego a steady paycheck for the foreseeable future. I think I may be crazy. But boy, am I happy.
My team bade me farewell with three parties since January. They roasted me with a very amusing, inside baseball top ten list, which I will keep to myself and a touchingly decorated office this morning.
When I arrived home from my last day of work a little while ago, my family bade me hello with lots of balloons, lovely flowers, confetti and chocolate.
Sophie’s adorable message: “This is dedicated to you because…you’re going to be with your family more, you asked for a party and…we are going to PARTY all night! Plus, out to dinner. You’re retiring! Love, Sophie.” Her note said it all.
