The same weekend we were in New Mexico, my brother moved back out and Vincent is back in his own room! This allowed us to purchase a desk and cube shelf, so I could set up a little office space in the bedroom to paint.
Part of me feels like I failed. I REALLY wanted for it to work and I kept trying to convince myself over and over again that everything was going to be okay. But it just wasn't. And at the same time, I felt like if I didn't leave, I'd not only be failing my son, I'd be failing my husband. I don't regret my decision at all and I've come to truly appreciate my time with Vincent all the more, as well as the opportunity to raise him at home, the way Mike and I see fit. It also gave me a lot of insight and a new appreciation for working moms and moms who do it alone! You women are rockstars! I've gotten back to painting pretty regularly again and life is good. Mike's job is exhausting, but he is really enjoying it and the fact that we are no longer financially struggling. I appreciate every single day how hard he works for our family.
