Its the end of the year and my company has that policy where is you don’t use all your vacation days you loose them. So for the next 3 weeks I will be at home with my little guy. Just me and him, morning, noon, & night. Just uninterrupted mommy & baby time. Back in October I was so excited about this idea. My husband was like “yeah we can save a ton on daycare.”
I’m not complaining – just clarifying that I have a whole new appreciation for moms that stay at home with the little people.
The last person in my family that was a stay at home mom was my Grandmother circa 1960-something when my Aunt Sandra was born.
When Wes goes down for a nap I am literally running to do everything I couldn’t do when he was awake. Before I know it …nap is over and I’m back on the baby hamster wheel.
Yesterday my husband asked me to print something for his job. That required me to open my work emails. I spent a whole hour distracted by the same dreaded work that I could wait to get a way from.
I love my son but this time at home has also taught me that while I don’t always love my job… I love the outlet for my type A atttitude.
