Life is certainly funny the way it works. For years, you can be going along, with no changes, no bumps - and smooth sailing.
Routine is your middle name, and you know what to expect, and when to expect it.
Life gives you a wake up call and suddenly everything changes in a moment.
Or at least, that's sometimes how it feels. ;)
For me, I've experienced a lot of changes over the past few months....
Sometimes things happen in life that we do not intend.
Sometimes good and sometimes bad.
For most of us - we are romantics at heart. We want the fairy tale life with the fairy tale ending. Only reality proves to us, that it isn't exactly true when we become parents.
The good and bad news about parenting is that we can be so caught up in bonding, meeting our kids’ needs, and even pleasing outsiders, that we can completely distance ourselves from our selves. Amazing and Scary!
This past weekend was a great wind down from the week before with the Launch Party for Enterprising Moms Network. I spent the entire weekend just enjoying my children and really relishing in the fact that I am a stay at home mom.
I've been a stay at home mom now for almost three years and it has been the most rewarding experience of my life. And although I love helping other moms find a way they can be at home too - nothing will ever compare to a hug or a laugh or the words "I love you" from my children...
