Until then I will just try and resist the urge to purchase
each and every one of these happy little things!

Starting at the end of May, I get to be a stay-at-home mom!
(at least for a year, then we will see what happens)
There it is! In writing!
This is really happening.
I have been holding my breath, biting my nails, and
just been plain too terrified to get excited.
But let’s face it. We spend what we make. I am tired, stressed to the max, and not rich.
My kids are growing up without me.
Life is short and uncertain.
It’s about time to simplify and prioritize around these parts.
I went to college straight out of high school, got two degrees, taught for 7 years…
I did what I thought was the responsible “next step in life”.
And I think being a working mom is over-rated.
I won’t get into the logistics of my chaotic day.
Long story short…
It is just seems impossible for me (this may not be true for everyone) to be a good teacher, a good wife, and a good mom.
I feel like most days our life style is about surviving, not truly living.
I want to fully take in my kids.
I don’t want to rush them into the car every morning.
I want to have time to make them breakfast and sit with them and visit as we eat it.
I want to drop them off at preschool and sign up for holiday party supplies.
I want to pick them up and ask what they did that day.
I want to have the time and energy to laugh and play with them in the evenings.
I want to make my husband dinner.
I will tell you right now, our house will not always be clean…
I will not always have an amazing dinner on the table…
We will be poor of money but rich in spirit.
I will get to enjoy my children and my husband and take life in with them.
So I will use my two degrees to raise three...(or four) children well and be a domestic goddess.
just to double check...
my doc may have seen two in there today...
(How much fun can I have?)
Let’s get this party started.
