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.
