The Best Job Ever

Being at stay-at-home mom was not what I thought it was going to be, but it turned into the best job ever. I get to wake up every morning and kiss my baby. I get to cuddle him, sing to him, eat with him, watch "Sesame Street" with him, shop with him, nap with him, and let happiness rule my schedule. We get to eat when we're hungry and rest when we're tired. We have a basic schedule, but we stray from it often.

I get to see the joy in my son's face when he learns to climb his slide or uncertainty when he tries something new. I also have to be the housekeeper and head disciplinarian, but nothing is perfect. I have lots of people ask me how I can stay home and still be satisfied as a person. I do work 12 hours a week outside the home which seems to fill any adult void that I have. I love being mama, there is no better title. My job is to raise a person, to sculpt a toddler into a man that I can be proud of. It's not an easy job, but the rewards are better than any paycheck.

I am proud to be a stay-at-home mom! I am just where I want to be. :)

Peace and love to your littles,

Goals for 2012

Rather than resolutions, I've decided to make some manageable goals for 2012. I hope, for once, that I can really stick to these.

1. To eat a less processed, more locally sourced diet.
Which I have failed at already, thanks McDonald's. I will succeed tomorrow.

2. To lead a more active lifestyle.

3. To re-connect with my Jewish roots.
Note the new layout. 

4. To read more books.

5. Lastly, to stay on budget every month.
