I’ve been doing a lot of thinking since I went away and well I might as well just come straight out with it….I’m not going to be working on Missbehave anymore. Ouch. It hurts to say out loud. I haven’t issued a statement on the site yet but I thought that I would take baby steps and start here. It’s sad because Missbehave was my life for so long. It was once a great Magazine and with time could have become a really great website, but it seemed like each week my pregnancy sunk in, the more my head was somewhere else, like here, writing about funny stuff that happens at the playground or my toddler shopping addiction. I’ll admit it, my lifestyle is changing. I can hardly believe that I’m going to have 2 f*cking kids! It all happened so fast, and let me tell you, the idea of the second is a doozy. A toddler and an infant scares the sh*t outta me! It’s not that Missbehave won’t always be part of my lifestyle, but the fact is I’m ready to move on. My first piece of business is to be a, I can’t believe I’m about to say this…a s-s-s-tay at home m-m-m-om or a housewife or whatever you call it, for a little while anyway. Actually, I’m going to name my new position ‘Mom About Town’. That’s better!
But you know what, after 6 years of running my own business I feel free, I can’t wait to spend time with Fritz this summer. My head is swirling with all the fun things we can do together. Swimming lessons! Art! Beach! Shopping! And I’m excited to grow this little body snatcher and knit a baby blanket for it, or booties or something. I have visions of grander for my new lifestyle. Maybe it will be nothing like I expect but I’m excited to try it. While this is not a long term plan it is the plan for now, and until the new baby is born, and at the very least sitting up on it’s own. During this time I’ll be plotting and planning. New business? Career change? I don’t know what I’ll be doing in a year from now but I know it will be something I love, because I wouldn’t have it any other way. Let’s call this next year an experiment of sorts. Think I can hack it? Well, I’m glad I have you guys to share it with…it should be pretty funny, frustrating, joyful and entertaining. Let’s do this!
