Since my second baby came along, I’ve been a stay-at-home mom mainly with occasional work hours sprinkled here and there. It has been a tough, easy, hateful, joyful, worthless, rewarding, bipolar job. All-in-all, I was almost always tired and exhausted but grateful for my kids’ smiles, laughter, and silly conversations. Recently, my father-in-law is going to retire so he offered to help with the kids and I can return to working full-time. Suddenly, I was both thankful and heartbroken. Glad to have an identity outside of being a mother and wife but sad that I won’t be there all the time with my babies to walk them through each trial and patch each boo-boo.
Adulting lesson: If we always look to our circumstances for happiness, the grass definitely always look greener somewhere else. So I’ve just been enjoying the current time I have with the babies before I go back to work and being thankful to God for my many blessings. 🙂
Happy Monday everyone!
P.S. Since I am planning to re-enter the workforce full-time, my Etsy shop shipping profile has changed. Instead of 1-2 weeks prior to shipping, it has changed to 3-4 weeks. So if you plan on ordering, please be aware and order ahead! ^_^
