Today, I am thankful to be at home with my kids.....now I preface this by saying that no one knows the future or the decisions, changes that may come but for now...I am home.
There have been times that I have been questioned or given that "raised eyebrow"..I have three teaching degrees ....special ed. certifications...I am piled high and wide with "education" but I am so thankful to be right at home....
-that anytime of the day I can breath in the smells of my little's girl Johnson and Johnson shampooed hair and squeeze her again!-my middle child tells the school nurse...that her mom can come anytime...very fast...b/c I am JUST at home...she knows I am there!
-I am that room mom,volunteer, fundraiser, make-copies mom, cupcake maker, Oriental-trader orderer, t-shirt maker mom! I love it!!!!-I have no deadlines, competition, office politics...I am always employee of the month.
-Every day is casual day!
-I can play hide n seek anytime!
For me right now, being home is such a blessing...a gift! I am not a super-mom...my kids have eaten cold pizza for breakfast with a pop tart (sorry mom!), not brushed their teeth before bed, thrown in a fabric softner b/c the uniform was not washed, forgot permission slips...you name it I have done it!
I have friends with great careers...I love to hear their stories...their struggles....I admire them...sometimes I am jealous of them...we all have the same dreams for our kids!
Being at home...does not make you a better mom but right now this is where I want to be!
