For those of you who know me, you know that for the past 4 years of my life I've been employed as a competition dance teacher/choreographer for the studio where my life in dance had begun over 25 years ago. Although I've grown to love my job and the girls that I taught (we've become so close and they're all like younger sisters to me!), this chapter of my life had to come to an end (due to changes in the babysitter situation and my husband's demanding work schedule). On the positive note, we ended our dance year with great success at a local dance competition and a wonderful recital where I had the priviledge of seeing off some of my older girls in what was their last recital as well. It was definitely bitter sweet!!
So, that leaves me to where I am now. I am officially a Work-At-Home-Mom (WAHM) now!! My husband still has his demanding work schedule between his full-time and part-time jobs, but at least now we have the blessing of having me at home to care for, raise, and love our 2-year-old son. So far we've been able to stick to our tight budget, squeeze every penny for what it's worth, and still have a mostly enjoyable family life.
