deep breath...

i am sure i am not the 1st or the last to say it...but being a stay at home mom is honestly the hardest thing i have ever done in my life. it has changed my outlook on a lot of things in life, some for better and some not so good. it has disappointed me in many ways as well. when you grow up with a june cleaver, mrs. brady view of motherhood, you quickly realize after you become one that its NOTHING like you thought.

and the funny thing is that no one warns you. maybe they hope it will be easier for you. maybe they don't want to admit their own downfalls or mistakes. maybe its better to start this journey with blinders on. all i know is it has been an amazing and exhausting experience at the same time. and then factor in that i am a single parent far more than i would like...well, it makes me want to go back to work somedays! :)

and now i am one of those parents who is thrilled that in little over a week, school starts.
