Although it's a lot of work, it is truly the most rewarding experience I have ever been lucky enough to do. I love staying home with my little man. At first it took some adjusting because my life before being a mom was full of running around, shopping for clothes, shoes and makeup getting hair and nails done, going out dancing, working a
9-5, I would leave the house in the morning and wouldn't get home until late in the evening. Nowadays I rarely leave the house at all. lol I do my own hair, I don't get my nails done, and any extra money I have I spend it on my sweet baby. It isn't really a sacrifice these things come without any second thought and with the realization that many of things I thought were so important before really weren't. Some days do come with some struggle and especially lately with his teething process in full swing. My patience is tested but then I hold him against me and his crys settle, or I sing to him and he smiles, or I tell him I love him and he coos and it totally melts me and I have to ask myself is this really my life? Am I really this blessed? I can't believe I have this sweet little baby and a husband who always holds my best interest at heart, who supports his family completely and allows me to live my dreams out loud! Its a miracle and I won't forget how special it is. I hope no matter what it is that brings each one of you happiness you find it and each day is fulfilling.
