Lazy Mama Bear

This has been the most relaxing, most needed, most enjoyable week and a half of my life!

For 1 1/2 years I have baby sat 2 girls (9 and 6) and for the past school year I have baby sat 2 other kids (4 and 1 1/2). Well on May 28th we stopped babysitting the older girls and the mom of the little kids lost her job, so we haven't had them either.

Although I am a little worried about our finances, I am looking at this as a blessing. It has been so wonderful to have my little family back and not have to worry about tons of little kids running around.

James also started working the day shift and so I have him home in the evenings to eat dinner with us, have FHE, help put the kids to bed. It is wonderful.

Yesterday, after we got our jobs done and the kids were busy playing I found that I was BORED! I know...can you believe it! I started doing little things around the house that I have always wanted to do but never had time. I don't know how you working Mom's manage things because I was working at home and still couldn't keep up!

I love summer and love having my kids home too. I just had to post and say that LIFE IS GOOD.

Now if it will just stop raining so that we could enjoy going outside!

I don't think any mom of 4 can ever claim boredom, except when you compare it to 8, I'm so glad you're getting some welcome down time.

I'm so very happy for you! I'm also happy because this means I've got my SAHM friend back!
