Happy February 29th!
Four years ago today I wrote this short post about my last day at my part time corporate job.
At the time I didn’t spend much time on my move from Corporate America. I had just found out about my son’s medical issues a week and a half earlier, had no clue what was ahead of me, and thought I may be back in another office job, most likely in a different industry, by the end of that year. I also thought four years from that date I would be on or have baby number 2.
Those things did not happen.
I spent the next four months waddling my pregnant body back and forth to the hospital for tests. I was told my son would not survive and offered to “terminate” my pregnancy on multiple occasions by medical professionals. I heard more bad news than you could imagine. In June 2012 I gave birth to my son born who spent 5 weeks in the NICU and had multiple surgeries. We then head home with a 5 week old with open wounds that took the next 3 months to heal.
It was the hardest time of my life.
February 29, 2012 felt like I was taking a leap away from the Corporate world and into the parenting world … but now, on February 29, 2016, I realize it was much MUCH more than that!
On February 29, 2012 I became a work-at-home mother to a son with special needs!
It has not been an easy road. I’ve gone on a few interviews over the years for office jobs but don’t foresee myself returning to an office anytime soon (but never say never). I consider my jobs to be 2-fold:
- I am a full-time mom and caretaker and trust me with therapy appointments, hospital visits, adaptive equipment procurement and maintenance, IEPs and general parenting it is FULL. TIME.
- I am also a professional blogger and vlogger (video blogger).
This year I am making intentional efforts to take my Glamazini brand and business to the next level.
The first 2 months of the year have already brought huge changes behind the scenes and I’m hopeful! If you’re interested in supporting me check out my updated Patreon page at
