I love my life as a stay at home mom. We live in a little bubble here and our days are slow and sometimes quiet. We keep to ourselves most of the time since John and I share one car and he is at school during the days.
Evaleigh spends a lot of time doing puzzles and coloring while Avett goes around making a lot of messes. Sometimes at the end of the day it can be frustrating but I wouldn't have it any other way. We are constantly rotating between the living room the kitchen and jumping off the bunkbeds in the basement.
With the weather cold now we don't spend as much time outside as we would like but I'm looking forward to warmer weather so we can live outside again. I never thought I would say I look forward to summer. But here I am in January looking forward to making water bubbles and playing outside in diapers and undies.
Of course there are hard things too, I'm really struggling with Avett wanting to be at my feet all of the time he's pretty fussy sometimes. It can be quite wearing on my nerves. But then I remember that he'll only be this little for so much longer. Parenting is such a roller coaster.
I really cherish this time when we are quite untouched by the outside world, all we do is hang out with each other all day long. And I love it.
