This is my first official week home as a full time stay at home mom. I can't tell you how many people have asked me this week "Has it hit you that you're staying home and not going back to teaching?" I keep feeling like everyone knows something that I don't, like maybe I should be prepared for some great epiphany that I'm not going back to work. To be honest, the transition has gone relatively smooth. Scott has been such an encouragement everyday to check on me and see how I'm feeling. There has only been one meltdown recently which I don't think is too bad. It had been a rough, slow day here at home and all I could think about was the hustle and bustle of the first week of school approaching that I became sad that I wasn't a part of it. Then I quickly look at our little man and realize what a blessing this is to be able to see him grow and change everyday and my tears quickly dried up.
I'm off to finish cleaning and to listen to the sweet peace of a baby sleeping.
