St. Patrick's Day Class Goodies
You can take the teacher out of the classroom...but you can't take the classroom out of the teacher!
This may be super "extra" but kids are only young once! And I fully believe one of my superpowers is making something that took 10 minutes look like it took an hour!
As many of you know I used to be a Kindergarten teacher! I LOVED it so much! But then I had Thatcher Reign and I KNEW from the moment I laid eyes on him I would never be able to leave him. I seriously looked at Paul in the hospital like 2 hours after birth and was like um....I'm not going back to work. He just laughed and said we will talk about it. But in his heart he knew I was going to be a stay at home mom.
Being able to stay home with my kids and leave my career was such an amazing opportunity! I was blessed to be in a situation that allowed for that! But I quickly learned is wasn't always RAINBOWS and butterflies. It was hard...like a lot harder than you would ever think!
Even with as busy as Teething Around keeps me now, I am still a "stay at home mom" on Tuesdays and Thursdays when I have both kids home with me. And boy did they TEST me today! From the tantrums to the meltdowns, to the adjusting to new nap times (thanks daylight savings time), to the car sickness throw up all over the car on the way to Oma's....today was one of those days where your like I give up! But your a stay at home mom....there's no one else there....during the day at least...so you can't just give up...you can't just take a "lunch break". HARD....definitely HARD...not as easy as I thought it would be.
But then there are the RAINBOWS, the rewards. Like I never missed the first time they smiled, or the first time they said a new word, the first time they sat up, the first time they did anything. I was there for it all. BLESSED.
So as I come down to my office after this long HARD day. I sat and put together these class goodies thinking of how BLESSED I am to be able to be here for both the HARD times and the RAINBOW times. And after a day like today I needed this reminder.
So I say to you, stay at home mom, working mom, mom to be, can't even picture the day you'll be a mom woman....in the midst of those HARD times, remind yourself that the RAINBOWS make it all worth it!
