I am thankful for the opportunity to be a Stay At Home Mom. Years ago, I could never see myself as a SAHM, but I have to say, I have enjoyed the last 7 years. It is definitely a lot different then being a working mom. I was in the Navy when I had my older 2 kids and they went to daycare. It was nice being with my younger two, and knowing all their first's were really their firsts. I love spending time with them and watching them grow. I like that I am able to take my older kids to activities that they want to do, and I can go to all the parent teacher conferences and other activities that happen at school during the day. I am looking forward to the days whee I can chaperone my younger children's field trips. I am very blessed that we can afford for me to stay home with my children, and even tho I get frustrated at times, I cherish every moment.
