...to stay home with my kids.
I love raising my kids, getting to see them grow up and be part if their every day!
BUT...I will be the first to say, that it doesn't mean I don't have rough days?!

Jobs have good days and bad days, so I am entitled to mine too...right?!
Sometimes staying home, I feel like everything has to be perfect. Things have to stay clean and I have to fit so much into my days.
Things aren't always easy and life does throw you curve balls now and then. All you can do is do your best and raise your kids to the best of your ability.
They look up to you...they watch your every move...they learn from your example...they are always learning and always growing!

There are days I think about how I would like a desk job, how I would like wearing something other than yoga pants and tank tops, how it would feel to pick up my kids at the end of the day, from someone elses care.

Those somehow don't ever outweigh the hugs, the cuddles, the kisses, the sweet words, the pictures, the fun games, the adventures...
Jobs can all have their days, but let me be the first to say, even though every days isn't a 'piece of cake,' I chose this and
Too soon the kids will be out at school everyday and I will be missing all these moments, so for now....I will soak them all in and enjoy every minute!
