Stay At Home Mommy

It's almost been a full calendar year since we made the final decision.



I have been thinking a lot lately about teaching. I do miss it. It truly was rewarding and I loved seeing my students grow up.

But you know what??

I love watching these kids grow up.

Now I'm not saying I don't have my moments and we do make sacrifices financially, but overall I truly love my job as a "domestic engineer"! It is priceless!

I rememeber you trying to make that decision, and I recall giving my two cents worth. I think it is one of the hardest jobs out there, but the mmost rewarding. And you are a GREAT mom, Lindsey! I think you made the right decision.

I feel so lucky in that nursing is such a flexible job for me that I can still keep my foot in the door and still feel like a SAHM. I work PRN (as needed) and I can pick my schedule and work as little or as much as I want. I only work a few days (nights actually) a month.

I wouldn't trade watching Amelia grow up for anything in the world!! It does require some sacrifices, and whooo, there's some of those hard days...but you are right...it's priceless!

(Besides...think of all that glorious MM stuff you get to experience first hand...hehehehehe! Is HJ going to be like her??? I sure do hope so!)

I still remember the day I went in and quite my job... The best day of my life. I love it and dont think I would have it any other way. I agree it is the best to see them grow up!

I never dreamed I would be so content doing this, but I am. It's truly been the best decision for us. Of course, I am lucky because I still get to write, which is the beauty of my former career - I can do it anywhere.

Have you thought about home schooling your two angels?
