It’s been a while, but that doesn’t mean you’re not working, says Erin Schickler, a mom and dad who recently took a month off from work to give her daughter a one-week vacation.
The New York City mom has taken the time to work on a new project, a new book, and is now looking forward to a return to work.
“We’re excited to be back in the workforce, and we’re looking forward for more time to spend with our daughter,” Schicklers, 29, told Mashable in an email.
“I’m really looking forward that we can finally reconnect after a year of separation.
Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs in the world, but it’s also one of my favorite.
I love working, but I also love being a mom, so it’s a little bittersweet to say goodbye to my job.”
Schickler began working in 2008 and has worked full-time since then, working part-time and taking time off to care for her daughter.
She said she is looking forward with a bit of a smile to seeing her daughter again.
“I love her so much and I can’t wait to see her again.
I’m excited to see where this goes next,” she said.
The New York native is now in the process of starting her third book, “The Story of Us,” and is already working on a fourth.
Her work is being published online, in bookstores, and she hopes to have a book release date for “The New Adventures of Mimi” in October.
