Goodbye “home”. Goodbye to the place where Rylee took her first steps. The place that was my escape. The wide open space. Goodbye to country living. Goodbye to privacy. Goodbye to the place that houses so many memories, good and bad. Goodbye to our first family home.
Hello to our new home! Hello to small town living. Hello to neighbors and trains. To parks and mosquitoes. To socializing again. Hello to being part of a community. Hello to friends and family. Hello to Rylee’s own room again. Hello to a nursery (no I’m not ready..again) lol. Hello to rent and reality. Hello to “my house”.
Goodbye corporate world. Goodbye to deadlines and meetings. Goodbye to business suits. Rude clients, not anymore! Goodbye to 7 am alarm clock. Now it’s a 7 am “mommy you sleeping”?? Not really a win there. Goodbye to desks and swivel chairs. Goodbye to adult interaction.
Hello to rest. Hello to Rylee J. Hello to late nights and early mornings, then again that’s always a part of my schedule. Hello to ABC’s and 123’s. To peanut butter and jelly lunches and juice stains on my shirt 24 hours a day. Hello to bare feet and lots of cleaning. Hello to pay cuts (hey I’m keeping it real). At the same time, hello to happy girls who love having mommy around.
Goodbye slim fit jeans.. well at 9 months pregnant I guess everything is “slim fit” if it fits at all. Goodbye to comfort. Goodbye to my feet, I’m sure there down there but I can’t see them anymore. Goodbye to crossing my legs and sitting like a lady. For now! Goodbye to sleeping. Goodbye to our family of 3.
Hello PJ pants. Like I said, I’m keeping it real. You know I’m not sitting at home with my toddler all day in jeans and an ironed blouse! Hello tiny razor sharp feet in my ribs, I can’t wait to kiss you! Hello foot rubs from the husband.. getting them while I can use the excuse “but I can’t reach my feet”! Hello to leaning and plopping myself down. Hello to our family of 4.. soon!
Goodbye to memories made and hello to making more! J
