At Home

Oh how I love being a stay at home mom.
It really is a blessing.
Would life be a little easier if I worked?  Maybe.  Maybe not.
All I know is that I have a HUGE job to do.
Sometimes I feel like I accomplished a lot and all I did was fold a load of laundry, took a shower and took the girls for a walk.  Nothing really life changing in those moments. (Ok, maybe when Emma told me I had beautiful changer right there)
Just being with them, showing them love, how to treat others, manners, about God and what He has for them is all worth it.
Oh and making them something to eat.  It's kinda my new favorite thing.  

There are days where I wish a had a fenced in back yard and I could kindly put them in the back yard and lock the door (done with love of course) so I could get a few things done, and drink a diet coke in silence.

Speaking of diet mother in law left some for me yesterday.
It's going to be a good day!

I love this post! I felt the same way ... so grateful that I was able to be home for as long as I was with my children. I love being a mother so much! Truly, the greatest blessings in my life are my children.

(And diet coke is up there too! I just ran out for my second one today. Oops ... I am tying to cut down!)
