My first day as a Stay at Home Mom
- I thought I would be less absent-minded since I wouldn't be so stressed out all the time. Turns out, not so much. I somehow left my grocery list at the kids preschool while I was writing them a check, even though it was tucked neatly into my purse originally, and had to drive all the way back there and have them root through the trash to help me find it.
- Even though the kids were at preschool during the day, I still filled up every second of my day. And hubby didn't even notice the sparkling-clean house. I need a bon-bon.
- I'm much less motivated to take a shower
- I'm very excited to spend the day with my kids (on their off-day from preschool) instead of leaving them with the babysitter
My story is a long one, I will fill you in briefly. Boy meets girl. They get married and boy starts medical school. Girl spends 10 long years putting boy through medical school, only to have to move with boy for a fellowship right before first child enters Kindergarten. Girl is forced to resign from beloved career to follow boy to the mountains for the final year of medical training before officially becoming a "real doctor". Girl discovers that life is actually pretty amazing and is ready to begin a brand-new journey as a career woman turned stay at home Mom.
The good news is that with all my experience with crafts and games for the kids, I think we will be very busy. I have decided to send Munchkin Girl to half-day Kindergarten next year so that we can explore our new city together. I will be documenting our adventures and hopefully educational experiences. Stay tuned, I'm so grateful for all my readers (hopefully there are still some out there?)
