IMG_0607Once upon a time, I was a suit.  A management consultant.  That’s the MBA your company hires to come in and tell you how to do your job.

I was a very good suit, and for a long time, I was a very happy one. Then I had my son, and my universe tilted on its side.

So, I left work to manage my family, and now that I’ve figured out my son won’t spontaneously combust without my constant supervision (in other words, he’s in high school and doesn’t want to see me unless I have food or car keys in my hands), can return to managing my own life.  I always said that I’d write if I had all the time in the world.  Since I never will, I decided now might be good enough.

Thanks for visiting my cafe — Come back again soon.  The eleventh cup is on me.

    Oh, I loved reading this post Jeannine. Robert, my partner races his one-off, experimental, turbo driven bike at over 200mph! (He designs high performance race engines) I’m not comfy with that either. He’s an extremely good driver but a bit of an adrenaline junkie. When I try to talk to him about this he reminds me that I told him I shouldn’t be able to kill myself in my glider because you glide 15 ft for every foot you drop. (What? I thought it was sensible) Oh…life…marriage…adrenaline!

    You describe the freeing effects of having a child so well. And it’s refreshing to see that side of it – because all too often we tend to dwell on all those other effects of parenthood, don’t we?
