Going Against the Grain
Going Against the Grain
08/12/2019

I am 27 years old and have been married for almost 3 years.  My husband and I welcomed our first son three months ago.  My husband and I often feel out of place in our generation of millennial snowflakes, but we wouldn't have it any other way.  We are not snowflakes and will not be raising snowflurries.

My last day of work was the day before our son was born, and I've been home with him every day since.  We discussed plans for me to stay at home during our dating years, and we saved for when that day would come, making sacrifices along the way.  Both of us were fortunate enough to have stay-at-home moms, and knew we wanted to provide the same stability, love and support to our children that our mothers provided to us.  I worked in a charter school and my colleagues were very supportive of my decision not to return to work. 

Full-time motherhood is tiring.  I'm still new at this, but it's so worth it.  The smiles and coos, snuggles and milestones bring me such joy, while at the same time some sadness, knowing so many babies are in daycare and parents are missing out on those sweet moments.  It's baffling to me how any parent can put a BABY in daycare, starting as young as six weeks old.  Thank you for your support, and please know there are some of us millennials who have our heads on straight and are fighting the good fight beside you.
