Ok first- Yes- I will probably offend someone with this- but that is just the way society is these days (that is a whole different soap box though). However, this is something that has literally been bothering me. In fact- it had me in tears the other day.
Why do we view Stay At Home Moms as less of a person then the moms who leave for work?
I can honestly approach this topic on both sides. I was a working mom. I dropped my kids off at daycare I went to a brick and mortar building and I worked. I had to. I would get so angry and frustrated when people would pull the “how can you let someone else raise your kids” and “how do you miss out on all those moments?”. It is called I had to. I had no choice. I did what I needed to help feed my babies, cloth them, and care for them. And yes even once I hit school age I changed jobs and went to work at their school as a para. There would be days where I would be out of my house for literally 15 hours between school and activities. Cleaning still got done and dinner still made (out here we do not have fast foods so that isn’t an option on those crazy 15 hour days). We made it work for as long as we could.
The All-Inclusive Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa
Yep. There. That is right there is where I want to be. I would be in the pool though (I have a fear of open water). School has started and so has the chaos. So escaping to a place like that would be heavenly right about now.
So it has been a while since I have done a random post. My kids started a new school this month. We were having way to many issues at their other school so we had to transfer them. They are loving it though. They have made new friends and have told us they are glad for the change. But with school- comes scouts, piano lessons, and then some. Let the games BEGIN!
Also with that change in school came a change of jobs for me. I sadly had to resign as the special education para. It was really hard for me to do. I cried! But I will have the opportunity to sub for them so I wont miss out completely. Instead I am going to focus on blogging and my Dove Chocolate Discoveries business and my photography! I already have a fun Gift Guide lined up for you for the holidays so I am excited for that.
Well now that we are settled in (somewhat) we are starting to work on little projects here and there. It has been a lot of unexpected but at the same time, a lot of better outcomes. We still have a ton to do and I still wish HGTV would send someone to do fix up our house all pretty like. But in the mean time I will just keep blogging about our little progress.
Yep. This is how I feel! We have had a busy summer this year. Baseball, horse riding lessons, cub scout camp, church camp and now my kids are at their grandparents for the weekend. It has dawned on me, that I have not been away from my kids for this long! EVER!
I am always on the search for unique and rustic items to decorate with. That is just who I am and recently I was told about ComfortWood. It is a new Etsy Shop started up by Matt & Heather. They offer wooden growth charts and other gorgeous home decor items. I have this little Q & A so to speak from Matt and Heather about them and their newest Adventure:
In the center of the picture there are at least 3 rain wrapped vortexes a few minutes later this hit town.
Sorry I have been a bit quiet and off and on with my posting this week. If you are a follower on my facebook page then you probably know on Mother’s Day we had some unwanted excitement. We knew what was coming we just were not expecting it to be as bad as it was.
