Checking in Since Quitting my JOB!
IconHi Dr Laura! Its been exactly 8 months and 11 days since I quit my job to be at home with my son! I've emailed you twice in the past. First about "Kissing My Baby's Face Off" and second when I informed you I FINALLY quit that stressful job and yanked my then 9 month old son out of daycare to stay home with him! WHAT A WONDERFUL BLESSING! The first thing I did was buy your book "In Praise of Stay At Home Moms". The second thing I did was witness the fun new discoveries my son made every single day! Next, I lost 12 inches (A WHOLE FREAKING FOOT) off my belly! I don't regret a SINGLE moment! Yes I do without! Yes I clip coupons! BUT SO WHAT? My son is happy, I am skinny, my house is clean and organized (I don't run out of things to do!), and my husband is getting even more loving than ever before!!! And my son gets his "child to child interaction" at the gym for 2 hours a day, 5 days a week while I work off some stress and weight!!! THANK YOU FOR PUSHING ME! MORE MOMS SHOULD LISTEN TO YOU!!! And thanks for your support for our men and women in the military. My brother in law is in Iraq right now. So I am going to take my baby and visit my sister and my nephew for a WHOLE WEEK, couldn't do that with a J-O-B!!!!! M. ONE HAPPY HOUSEWIFE/HUSBAND's GIRLFRIEND AND MOMMY!
