A week ago we got up and as we got ready for the day realized that the unthinkable had happened . . . I had made a scheduling oversight! Seriously - I can't understand it, I mean I have never ever done anything like this before (snicker) and am usually so completely together and with-it with our scheduling (snort). So, met with this dilemma we had to decide, send me to work and cancel Tyler's patients so he could stay home with the kids . . . . OR I could call in "sick" to work and stay home with my babies while he went to work.
Obviously I chose to sacrifice and stay home.
It was hard.
But I'm great like that.
Seriously, I am not meant to have a "real" job. Leaving my three littlest littles every morning is enough to rip my heart out, chop it up and serve it with vinegar. It's awful, every day. Yes, I have a great job. Yes, teaching is in my blood and I'll admit I think I'm ok at it. Yes, we are extremely thankful to have a paycheck to count on right now when our finances are uncertain. Still, this day was a testament to the whole family that Heavenly Father's plan is for Mom to be at home being Mom while Dad is at work providing. That's the way it's meant to be. I can't wait to get back to that!
So, here's for striving for days when I can catch my kiddos "reading" to their babydolls and get all three of them to grin at me. If there's anything I know FOR SURE it's that all I want to be is a great wife and "JUST A MOM" again.
