I know people always take this time of year to reflect on things that they are thankful for, so I figured I jump right on this bandwagon myself.
1. My hubby. I mean, seriously. Without him, I wouldn’t be a stay at home mom. I wouldn’t be spending all day with my awesome little guy. He has known since the day Owen was born that I have wanted to stay home with him. Granted, it took 3 1/2 years, but we did it. SEAN did it. He is my rock, my best friend, my partner. He rocks my socks off.
2. Owen. He is such a cool kid. In the past month, he has seriously taught me some patience. He takes his time in everything he does, and wants it to be perfect. He has taught me to slow down and enjoy each minute. Why am I in such a rush anyways?
3. Friends. I have some really great friends. Friends who have supported me wanting to stay home with Owen, even if it meant quitting my really great job. A job with benefits and retirement and security. In the long run, family is most important, and my friends knew this. And supported this. And encouraged me and gave me the hug and push it took to finally make this move. And Bethany, you don’t know how wonderful you are and how much I cherish our friendship. You are my sounding board, and you don’t even care when I complain to you for the 40th time about the SAME thing. You rock.
I know there is more I’m thankful for, but according to my hubby, I’m a “holiday eater” and clearly it’s put me into a food induced brain coma. I’m just sitting on the couch, smiling like a loon, while Owen is watching Wonder Pets for the 3rd time…in a row. And I don’t even mind.
I leave you with a few holiday pics!
