Work or stay home? Work or stay home?– That question has been storming my brain for nearly 8 months. Ever since my son Noah was born, my life has changed. Everything that once was important has become minor in comparison to him. I loved teaching. I STILL love teaching, but I love Noah more. I’ve cried many tears trying to figure out how I could spend as much time with him as possible. I’m sure that not growing up with a mother partially fueled my firm refusal to part from him, even if I was making a difference in children’s lives.
The truth is that I’ve always dreamed of being a business owner. I wanted to call my own shots and be my own boss. I wanted to make a legacy for my family so that we didn’t have to struggle day to day and week to week to survive. I have always wanted to take care of my dad so that driving a cab was a hobby instead of a necessity. I’ve always dreamed of THIS! Yet, I never really dreamed of being a mommy. I never could imagine what having a child would be like or if I actually wanted one. But the moment I saw his face, I knew that there was no job more important than this. Noah is my real DREAM COME TRUE!
Now that Noah’s House LLC is really official, the stress of it all is frightening, but the opportunity to create something for other parents and their young kids to enjoy is quite fulfilling. I haven’t found any place yet that makes parents feel just as important as the kids. Creating a place filled with love is my mission. I am going to touch lives and help make others happy all while being the best mommy I can be!
Thank you Noah for being my inspiration and my REAL dream come true!
