Five Minute Friday: Home

I love reading Gypsy Mama's posts, especially the Five Minute Friday ones.  Today I thought I'd give it a try!


Home is where I want to be right now.  Just me and the girls.  Not at a job that isn't fulfilling.  I really want to be a stay-at-home-mom, but it is impossible.  We have bills to pay, and they won't get paid without my paycheck. 

My girls go to an amazing in-home daycare, which is run by a girl my age.  She has a son who is Abby's age and they love/hate each other.  I know she loves my kids like they are her own, and I am so thankful for that.  I just wish it was me home with them.

I want to be the one coming up with fun crafts and projects for Abby to do.  I want to be the one teaching her her letters and numbers.  I do these things, but it's hard on weeknights when I only get to see her for an hour and 1/2 before bedtime.  And weekends can be so hectic.  I need to start saying no more and staying home when I can.


That was fun!  And I feel a little better now that I got that off my chest.


  1. I'm so glad you wrote this. When there are times I feel like I need to escape my house, I will remember how blessed I am to be here with my kiddos - even on the days when I've got no energy for crafts or the alphabet. :)

  2. You are my very 1st comment! :) Don't get me wrong, there are times, like after an especially challenging weekend with my 2 year old, that I'm thankful I get to leave and go to work. But mostly I just miss them. So happy for all you mommas who get to be home with your kiddos all the time!
