As of yesterday I am officially a stay at home mom…. well hopefully ONLY until I give birth to our second child. We’ve just experienced our first military relocation and in doing so I had to resign from my current position. Being that I am 7 months pregnant we figured I probably wouldn’t have much luck finding a new job right away sooooo I’m going to wait until after the baby is born to rejoin the workforce. I am hoping to not go completely crazy spending the next few months at home with my 3 year old which may prove to be extremely difficult as Baby Girl is very talkative. I mean VERY VERY talkative. She’s one of those kids that calls you 27 times and wants nothing at all OR she has a crazy question to ask and you as the parent have not a clue as to how to answer.
At the suggestion of a very respected blogger I’ve purchased the book Home Comforts, which is supposed to teach me everything and then some about all aspects of keeping house…. I will see how this goes, but I figure I may as well go all out. I’ve been trying to decide if I am going to be the good little wife and mother by getting up every morning and preparing a full breakfast for him and Baby Girl so they can have a hot meal… I will definitely try I guess it won’t be a big stretch since I do cook dinner, but again this is all new to me and not to mention I am NOT a morning person. Somebody pray for me!!!
I’ve been challenged before and have come out unscathed; however I am not domestic in the least… sure I can cook and clean ya know the basics but I don’t know how those other moms out there do it and look so darn well put together in the process. You know the ones I’m talking about well pressed khakis, pearls, not a hair out of place, clean ,well-mannered children and it all appears to be so effortless. This is going to be my biggest challenge to date!
