My husband and I decided together that the best course of action for our family and our children would be for me to stay home with our children until they are school age. That means I have at least 5 more years before I rejoin the workforce.
One of my biggest challenges with being a stay at home mother is living in the moment and appreciate the time I have with my children now, while they are young. I admit, I often struggle with the fact that I am an intelligent, educated, driven woman and I am "just" a mom. Today, I'm talking about that struggle in KludyMom's "Around The Bonfire" series. Head over there to check out my post.
Meanwhile, I will take Sierra to preschool, and put together the same puzzle over and over with Kaia, and get paid in kisses and "I love you"s and know that these girls are totally worth it.
