What's new

I've enjoyed some of this stay-at-home mom thing, but ya'll - I am SO ready to go back to work.  Maybe it's because I know I have to and I'm emotionally detaching myself from the stay-at-home-mom lifestyle I've been doing the last couple of months.  Or it could be this:
I love him.  I really do.  But this precious, screaming child wants to be held.  ALL.  THE.  TIME.  And maybe I'm a callous, heartless mama, but I don't want to hold him all the time.  You can tell me that time is fleeting and they're not this small forever and I should enjoy every moment.  I know all that.  I enjoy motherhood a lot.  I also enjoy eating with both hands free at the dinner table and things like taking a shower by myself.
In other news:  my sister went to prom.  She is gorgeous.  And I feel old.
Job hunting/interviewing/waiting/searching can be grueling.  And it is right now.
I was told I should go into business for myself staging homes and helping people with home decor.  That sounds like the funnest of fun jobs and would be totally up my alley, except I'm a big chicken when it comes to trying to start something like that.  Mostly because I would inititally have to go and sell how awesome I am to realtors so they would want to use my services.  It all sounds mildly terrifying.  Yet the idea of setting my own schedule is of course ideal.  Again though....I'm a big chicken.
I did, however, have the guts to wear a real hat the other day.  In public and everything.  (Do you love my three year old photo bomb?)

Oh and I'm so doing this:

It's time to pull some new writery-stuff out of myself and I thought the idea of blogging every day in May was a fabulous idea.  Maybe you should join in too!
Hope your weekend is full of cute hats.  And babies that don't scream at you.
Happy Friday ya'll!


  1. Every day for a whole month? Yikes. I'll have to think about that.

  2. I love how honest you are! Love it.

    Dude, just go for the career wish, GO FOR IT.

  3. ha, love the honesty! I always say it won't hurt them to cry a bit while you aren't holding them. Builds character!!
