Things I learned after becoming a Working Mom

In October our family went through a really big shake up. After 5 1/2 yrs of being a stay at home mom I went back to work full-time. I didn’t make this decision lightly or on the spur of the moment, I agonized over this for almost a year.

There is something about Christmas lights

I am a huge fan of Christmas! If I am completely honest I would be happy starting to decorate for Christmas and listen to Christmas songs the day after Halloween. My husband on the other hand would be completely happy if the decorations and music stayed in boxes till the week of and then were put away the day after. Thankfully he has compromised and allows his Christmas fanatic of a wife to start Christmas the day after Thanksgiving.

One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is setting up the Christmas tree. I always liked it as a kid but now that I have my own kids, I love it even more.

Kids being Thankful Day’s 4-9

We are continuing with our Kids being Thankful posts that I started last week. If you miss that post you can check it out here. I decided this year that instead of doing the 30 days of Thankfulness myself I would turn the tables and have my kids do it. The simpleness of the things they are thankful for have really opened my eye’s to the world and what I really do have to be thankful for, 2 kids that don’t care about money or things but that they are safe and happy.
