I just realized it has been close to a year since I blogged last.  I so wish I had stayed up with this better.  I look back on the posts the first days after I quit work to stay home with our son, and love reading those so much.  Some days I’m glad are behind us, and some days I miss Oh So Much!

Little man is now 3 and a half.  He’s an active little guy, and we have lots of adventures.  He loves MUD.  He loves his cat SOPHIE (although the feeling isn’t very mutual).  He loves all of his GRANDPARENTS and loves to visit them all.

So here’s where I am at as a mother today.  I’ve been thinking about going back to work.  Some women live for the opportunity to stay home.  For me, this has been a true challenge.  To all of you great moms who are home all the time, and love it, I commend you.

I, on the other hand, feel almost guilty for dreaming of those days back at the office with deadlines and craziness.  Don’t get me wrong.  There have been fabulous mommy/little boy days.  We’ve done lots of fun things and spent tons of quality time together.  I wouldn’t trade all of my days to be back at work.  Just maybe some of them.  

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord…

Boy does he.  I would never have guessed two and a half years ago, I would be dreaming of staying home.  I’d never have dreamed the past two and a half years would have been so hard (you fooled me well, all of you great stay at home moms that make it look so easy!)  I’d never dreamed I would daydream of my days back at work.  

So keep our family in your prayers.  May I continue to see God’s plan for us with clarity.  He’s with us all the time, sometimes I just forget for a few minutes:)
