staying home

So, this week has been kind of different for me because all of my teacher friends started back to work this week and for the first time in 6 years of working in education I am staying home. My hubby and I have have always known I would stay home when we had kids, so this is a very intentional decision and really, I have been so grateful for the opportunity to stay home with my baby- I love it!
It is funny, though- there are so many misconceptions about being a "stay at home" one being, that you get so much time to relax and rest because you are home...yeah, right! That couldn't be farther from the truth- in fact, I feel like I work harder in this job than I did as a Kindergarten teacher. I feel like I am constantly on the go with taking care of Allie and trying to help her with her development, also, working in my house and running errands keeps me busy, too.
I am realizing it is a thankless job that doesn't get sick days, promotions or pay raises- however, it does have its intrinsic values that come at the most random for those priceless moments I am so thankful!
