I went from working full time 40+ hours a week to staying home and my husband working full time. Now I see him when he’s home, he’s tired, I’m tired and the kids are on the go or want nothing but all the attention. But despite the tiredness, the sleepless nights, and the less time with my husband; I’m so amazingly blessed. I have a wonderful loving husband and two amazingly beautiful children. Even when I wake up in the morning barely able to keep my eyes open while I make a cup of coffee and breakfast for the two year old, he’ll ask “mommy hold you?”. Of course. Always. Then of course we eat the next thing he wants is to get cozy on the couch, which for him is grabbing a blanket going to the couch, throwing on a cartoon and cuddling with mommy. My heart melts every time. I’m lucky enough that the 4 month old sleeps long enough for me to get that time with him.
I watch him grow and learn everyday of which, I hadn’t gotten the chance to do. So now being here for both her and him is the most amazing thing. I’m so grateful my husband was in agreement when I said I wanted to do this. I mean what could be more rewarding than being able to watch your kids grow up and you don’t have to miss it. With that being said we’ve really thought about what we have our kids around too and what we have in our home. My son mostly when he starts having melt downs he’ll go grab his ‘green one’ which is just a stress away oil roll on and he loves smelling it and calms down. I never thought he’d ask for oils but he does. Since we live with my husbands parents, they have a dog and boy does he love her, sometimes a little to much.
My daughter, she’s such a happy baby. She always kicks and plays with her little gym on the floor, she loves looking at herself in the mirror. Rilynn laughs and smiles way more than Jackson ever did, he was so serious all the time. I can’t wait to see what her personality is and see the things she’ll ask for. But, because of my husband and my business I now get chance to see them grow up and I’m so very blessed to do so.
