    Congrats! I’m so happy for you and Anders! I’ve been a SAHM for almost 5 years now and it just keeps getting better and better.

    Good for you. I’m sure it was a decision that was hard to make (pocketbook-wise) but easy (heart-wise).

    I must confess that I’ve always been of the ‘why bother having a kid if you’re going to let someone else raise him?’ school. Having said that, half my friends did work full time and most of their kids are terrific adults. I guess I came to the conclusion, early in the game, that my heart wouldn’t allow me to work when my children were babies. It just hurt too much to leave them so well done, kid, and I’m sure the benefits of being with your boy will outweigh the financial loss.

    Congratulations. That is taking your life into your hands, isn’t it?!
    Good for you, and good for Anders (and Hubby, too)!

    This has nothing to do with your post, but I tried emailing you and it opened up some crazy email window that rudely demanded I set up a .mac account, or something. But, that’s not the point here.

    What IS, the point however, is that I was wondering whether you could tell me what program-hosting-thingie you use to create your blog, because I recently got my own domain name, and aside from other bloggers, I have no idea who to ask about this.

    Much appreciated,

    Congrats! I hope it’s everything you want and more. I bet your nanny is sad though; who wouldn’t be after getting to spend time with that cutie of yours?

    I am thrilled for many reasons, but one tiny one is because you will NOW HAVE TIME TO POST! And that makes me happy. I am totally selfish in my happiness for you.
