I love being a mom....I love the fact that I was able to stay home with Julien for the first 14 months of his life (full time) and I love the fact that our family is fortunate enough for me not to have to go back to work full time.
I miss him terribly on the few days that I do work, but the time I have with him I treasure even more......
Last night for example, I picked him up at 5pm, then we headed to the grocery store.....got home and he spent some time with J while I made dinner.....after dinner he had his bath, J headed to the neighbours to help him move some furniture. After Julien's bath, we played in his bedroom. The entire 30 minutes consisted of taking 11 shower curtain rings and putting them into a bucket, then into a plastic container, and then dumping them out and doing it all over again.
But as simple as it was, he had so much fun......and it reminded me how nice it is to be a mom.
