Some unsolicited advice

I always knew that one I was blessed enough to become a Mom I would also take on the role of being a SAHM.  I never really put much thought into the how’s and why’s, I just knew it was how it had to be.  After the birth of Corinne the starts aligned in my favor and I was able to stay home full time with her.  The transition has been rough at times but the rewards are obvious and it is something that I love and feel honored I am able to do.

I remember many times feeling guilty when Josh was leaving for work and I was laying on the couch with our beautiful baby sleeping on my chest, or on cold, rainy days when I had the luxury of staying inside nice and warm and he did not.  But like everything else in life there is a balance and all aspects have to be considered.  There are the days when she would be extremely fussy and difficult to console and he would be walking out the door while she was screaming, or when you finally think you are able to take a shower and your peacefully sleeping baby wakes up screaming!  Yeah, it’s not all naps on the couch and play dates.
