Stay at home mom...
Any way you slice it, this is a hard season of life.
Any way you slice it, this is a fantastic season of life.
Today I went back to work. I've mentioned that I'm only working part time. It was hard to leave my little ones this morning. BUT it was wonderful to come home to them at 11:00am.
I was just left thinking that today was okay. But I have to do this 179 more times before next Summer...? I'm thinking about making a count-down chain for myself. Ha. That might actually make things worse. No matter how you slice it, I think I've got a great situation this year.
I was also thinking about how quickly these past two years have gone. Those of you with older kids will probably agree...it's gonna go fast. Next fall Macie will be in preschool! A friend of mine posted on her blog that we only get '18 summers' with our kids. And I can't help but think she's right. Granted, with more kids, it's a little more than that, but my point is that these tough times (just changed a very gross poop) are going to go SO fast and I want to enjoy them. And I have been. And I delight eveytime Macie and Penny do something new. Just today I noticed that Macie has started saying the word "fix" correctly. For a while she would say "daddy fik it". Today she said, "Macie fixed it". And I got sad. She's not going to be so little for so long. Penny will be 5 months this week. She is rolling over (all ways) and almost sitting up on her own. These days are long, but I love this new job called 'mommy'. Educator is great, but personally, I think "mommy" is my favorite.
