Signed, Sealed, Delivered... I'm yours!

So, it is official.  I am currently employed for another year.  I felt I had to tell my boss of my "situation" before i could hand over my job offer to him.  I had to tell him that currently, my expectation was that I would be taking maternity leave in January of 2014.

His reply "congratulations.  You are going to be a wonderful mother."

I knew I could trust him with this information.  He didn't have any problems with me signing the contract.  He was just happy for me.

These are among the reasons I love my boss.  He is fabulous!

I wish everyone could have a boss as wonderful as he is and I hope he never leaves.  I hope he stays until I retire.  He's amazing.

So, after I revealed my news he urged me to sign my contract and hand it over.  Signed. Sealed and Delivered I get to continue in my current position until the arrival of Shmily.

Um.... yeah... Shmily is the nickname we've given to that unbridled lump of joy that is currently transforming itself into a baby in my uterus.  It is an acronym that stands for "See How Much I Love You".  Sappy right?  But I love my husband and he loves me and together we made Shmily.  Yay. 


  1. That's awesome! What a relief!

    Shmily- I love it! Sappy is totally acceptable- have you started crying over ridiculous things yet? I do that almost all the time, but the whole crying thing got ridiculous when I was expecting my daughter!

  2. Yep... i'm a cryer... and it has gotten so much worse lately! I was waiting for my husband to pick me up somewhere and reading the news about the oklahoma tornadoes on my phone. A complete stranger asked me if I was ok. I explained yes I was fine but the story in OK made me so sad. Then he told me that he wasn't sure that any news was real unless it actually happened to him. in fact he wasn't even sure OK was real because he had never been there and they seemed to have a lot of tornadoes....

    Now I know why my mom said don't talk to strangers...

  3. Awesome with the job! That is great you already told your boss too :) congrats!

  4. Oh I'm glad it went well!! And super adorable name for the peanut.

  5. I'm so glad that the talk with your boss went well. He really does sound amazing! And I love the name Shmily. Very unique, and the meaning is perfect =)
