I finally did it. I took the plunge. I quit my job.
I had the same job for the last 4 and a half years (since before I was married.) It was a great job, and something I enjoyed doing, but ever since my little boy was born 2 and a half years ago, all I wanted to do is be a Stay at Home Mom.
Going from two incomes to one is kind of scary – but we have faith that this is the right thing for our family.
I didn’t realize how much of a life change it would be. I went from being gone all day every day (scrambling to get dinner on the table when I got home at night) to all of the sudden being home all day (enough time to put something in the crock pot for dinner that night)!
The first week has been wonderful – I think it makes me feel like a better wife and mother because I’m able to keep up on the laundry, the meals, and the cleaning.
But here is where I need your help… What are fun, educational things I can be doing with my 2 year old? I would love any comments and advice!
I think I need to go out and buy some craft supplies, because so far – this has been the extent of our crafts:
Hurray for being a full time mom! It’s the hardest and most rewarding thing I’ll ever do in my life… right?
