my humble home, and art, and such....

Home


I just want to stay home. I want to be there for my little ones anytime they need a hug, to snuggle, to cry, to show me the most beautiful picture they just drew. I want to be there. I want to be there for my older kiddos, for meal time chats, for midday walks, to tuck them in before they are too old to be tucked in anymore! I won't even mind if sometimes they take me for granted for always being there. I want to spend the day up to my elbows in dishes and up to my knees in laundry. I want to have the chance to do it again- to be the stay at home mom I was- only better. I want to help, encourage and support my dear husband in his goals and dreams. I want cook the meals with my daughters. I want to color with my little ones. I want to play board games (maybe even computer games?!) with my 13 year old. Yes I know I can squeeze the time in to do those things now, but it is not the same as staying at home and doing them, its just not.
I am not complaining, I am not looking down at other moms who work happily outside of the home. I just wanted to share my hearts desires because this is me, it is what I think about and dream about all the time.

I love the frame, is that one of your kiddies in it? I love working, and was thrilled to be going back to work after a year off, but now that im back at work...Id love to be home..nothing is better then a cuddle and a smile from your baby.. even though the pay is lousy being a stay at home mum...the benefits are way way way better then any pay cheque:)

Thanks Skye :) That is my sweet Gracie in the pic. The frame I found at a thrift shop- I ripped out the old pic in it and sanded it a bit. Le'ts look forward to the day we will be successful altered art artists and can stay at home with our kiddos and create art all day for a living ;)

Hold on to the dream. That day will come, the problem is--my kids are now gone. Boo-hoo. My three live in diffent states from us. Even though being a s.a.h Mom took sacrifice--of many things--I'll never regret it. Not knowing your situation, having just encountered your blog, I'm not scolding, just relating.
