If you were to look at the "Meet The Sugar Family" page on this blog you would see this description under my picture:
I like to tell people that I am really a stay at home mom.... trapped in a working mom's body. Besides my daily struggle with that reality, though, I am a well-adjusted and happy thirty-something woman. I am fortunate to be married to the love of my life, and I am totally head over heals for our two beautiful children.
Pretty soon the description under my picture will say:

Sugar Daddy and I are at a point where we have gone through a re-evaluation of our lives and how we have things organized. It's no secret that I have struggled with being a working mom since the kids were born. The strain that it has caused emotionally has been huge. When Sugar Boy was diagnosed with Diabetes, I almost stopped working then. The reason I didn't is we had just bought our house 6 months before. We felt that was just not an option, especially since we had my mom living with us then, too. So, I continued to work and had extra worry heaped on because leaving him each day frankly scared the crap out of me.
Today, we are in a different place... as it is a different time. And we can make different decisions.
I am so happy to say that we have chosen for me to be home, working just part time (hopefully from home). Taking care of the kids. Taking care of diabetes. And for the first time in a very long time... taking care of me.
