The next best thing

I love receiving up dates of my babe while I'm at work!  I just received this video from my mom earlier this week and it got me thinking...

Most weeks from Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm I am away from my baby.  I am away because I choose to be but certainly not because I really want to.  I choose to get up, put my make up and heels on and go to work because it makes me feel good.  I don't bring home a paycheck anymore because I work solely in my husbands practice now. Some people may think that my decision is crazy, why would I work if I don't have to!?!  The answer is simple, when I feel good about myself and the work I do for Ben and our business, Ben feels good and the dude feels good!  I'm a firm believer in you have to be happy yourself before you can make other's around you happy.  And if heading in to the office every day and contributing to Ben's success makes me happy then so be it!  Not to mention, I've been with Northwestern Mutual for 10 years this summer!  Not only do I love this company but I absolutely love the people I work with!  PLUS and this is a big PLUS, when the three of us are home in the evenings and on weekends our time together is SO much sweeter!  Enough rambling, my point is that if I'm not going to be with my babe during the day I am beyond grateful to have my mom and mother-in-law there to fill my shoes.  They are the next best thing and I can't thank them enough.  Charlie loves them so much and it makes me very very happy :) 
Thanks Mom's!
