It will be 2 years this September since I quit my full-time job in collections and decided to stay home and raise my kids full-time.
I thought I would be working my whole life, I never thought I'd be the stay at home type. I still don't know if I am, but I am doing it. I constantly think about the future and how I can prepare myself to make money when my kids are old enough, which is why I've been in school doing photography and graphic design. I wonder why I can't just stay at home and not worry about it, but I do. Life would be so much easier
I can't tell you how much I love waking up to my kids. Just this morning my 4 year old says mommy go take a nap (he wanted to watch cartoons by himself). No argument there, he was practically pushing me out of the room. Of course I had some things to do so I showered and did what I had to do.
My children growing and becoming more independent is bittersweet.
I may be too much of a picture taker but when you capture moments and times like these who can argue??
Mommies little Superhero's
Older Brother syndrome torture younger child.
It's been fun getting to see them grow and learn.
Just the other day I wanted my little girl to snuggle and she says "No, I don't wanna nuggle".
Then one day my 4 year old actually rolled his eyes at me, I wasn't prepared for it but was like oh ok, we're getting older now.
Just this morning my 4 year old comes into the kitchen, shorts in hand, saying "I've got my pants". I'm like "where are you going?" He's like "you said we were going to the bouncy house". Me "what, I never said that" Him "yes you did" now a smirk grows across his face and I say are you lying and he shakes his head yes.
Little sneak. I thought for a minute maybe we will go to the bouncy house that littly sly guy...actually I was impressed. Then I thought I'd have to put on a bra and decided against it.
Every day is fun and interesting and new. I'm still learning to be the best mom I can be and every time the kids go through a new stage I'm learning all over.
