The new year. Filled with goals and resolutions, and I can't decide if we've done that or not. We continue to trudge along in the early parenthood stages. Trying not to think of it as trudging, but trudging still. We are diving in, as a family, into a new venture. Daddy's going back to work, baby Xavier is going to need to go to daycare. We need the second revenue stream. That's for certain. But we still need to pull from our meager back up money to dive ahead.
I was having a tough time with this fact all week. I was mad a 26 year-old-me who failed to build up a cash reserve and who lived pretty high on the hog compared to 36 year-old me. Where will we be in another ten years? Are these early parenthood years always so hard, no matter your circumstances?
I'm thankful for visits from friends to remind me of the fun things in life. For reminding me that I'm not always a parent or just a worker-drone. So, as my dear sweet hubby forges ahead with his career, I will be the positive support he needs, just like he's always so supportive of me. After all, we're diving into this venture together.
