I've recently started a new job within the agency I work for allowing me to stay at home with my kids. Wow-what an adjustment! Not to complain at all, but it has been a tish overwhelming to try to settle into a new routine.
My two boys are completely opposite in personality types. Do you find this to be the case in your family. I have the stereotypical "Type A" first born and the laid back, care-free second born child. With the ages and personality differences, there come plenty of diagreements in the activity of choice. One wants to read books and the other wants to wrestle. One wants a movie about dinosaurs and the other wants Ninja Turtles. The days are filled with lots of laughter, wrestling, cookie baking and playdoh throwing, er playing.
I have been receiving loving support from my fellow stay at home mom friends who have given me helpful advice on keeping my sanity. So, thank you to those of you who have been that for me!!!
I'm beginning to wonder if I will ever get a few minutes of uninterrupted bathroom time, if I was born to do laundry, or when someone will invent the self-cleaning toilet. There are some days I sit back and watch my household and think we could turn our lives into a sitcom. I remain thankful for what God has blessed me with. I'm sure I will miss the days of scrubbing grass stains out of their jeans, wiping up spilled chocolate milk and reading books before nap time.
....however, if anyone wants to join me for a manicure sometime, I would have no objections.
