Numbered Days

I have been a stay at home mom for 5 1/2 years, starting right after Asher was born. In a meer 10 days, all 3 of my babies will be in elementary school. It is an end of an era, one that I am not exactly ready to end.

When I started staying home, Alivia was 3 1/2, Addison 15m and Asher a baby. It is hard to believe they are all old enough to be in school. I will miss getting hugs all day long, playing with them all day long, going to the zoo, museums, etc, etc, all day long with them while they are in school. I am dreading sending them all to school.

I know Asher is ready. But, I am not.

I know I would never be ready.

I don't know what the next step is for me. I decided that I wanted to enjoy this time with them at home and not focus on what happens next until the time came. I still have a few more days until I really should give it some thought. Until then, I have some hugs to give all day long.

I'm off to soak up the summer sun with my 3 beautiful babies.

You are so smart to have this outlook. I spent way too much time wondering what would happen next. Each day is a gift and we are meant to live it in the day. The right job will reveal itself in due time. Until then, keep looking, enjoy this time, and let the rest fall into place. It WILL fall into place.
