I saw this blog post -I laughed and thought how true is this. I am very thankful for all that we have. Its not big, flash or fancy but I'm happy and content to sit on the couch and knit socks while my boys play lego in front of me.

I'm content (and it seriously has taken 7 1/2 years to get to this point) where I'm able to walk my boys to school, be an active part of their lives. Right now I have made a choice not to work full time and for that I get to be around to capture moments that I might otherwise miss.

To be home during the day doesn't just mean sitting down knitting for 8 hours (I can only but dream to be creating and crafting all day) . I honestly find it very hard to do one task for a long period of time without thinking about all the other tasks - cooking,cleaning. errands, dog walking etc. I could/maybe should be doing.

There have been times in the past few months where my availability has worked (and in some ways validated this decision)- this means I have the time to visit friends and be a help out where I can.

These choices we have made work for us as and our family and I am so thankful to have all that we do.

  1. I love this post. I bet you get asked a million times "what are you going to do now both the boys are at school?". What you are doing is so important x

  2. Being a Mum and being available is the most important thing - go you! never underestimate the value of being there xx

  3. just to plop my 2 cents in, too, that you coming up here has been a blessing =). the fact that you want and that you have the time. thank you!
