They aren't kidding motherhood is hard, not that I thought it would be a piece of cheesecake! But you know what I mean. Our lil boy is now a year old, how fast the time went by! All the 'firsts' we got to experience with him, wouldn't have missed it for the world! I am so blessed that I have been able to stay home with him! However, that isn't all fun and games all the time...I do work from home. Thankfully he takes awesome naps and I haven't had to stay up too late or wake up in the wee hours of the morning (unless I couldn't sleep) to crank out articles. We are saving on daycare and I'm paying part of the bills, but I may have lost my sanity in the process. Not sure about that yet. I still seem somewhat sane. At least now that my husband is back. With his job he works 12+ hours days M-F and sometimes the entire weekend during the late spring, summer and fall. I'm a concrete widow during that time. So I really enjoy the winter when the concrete industry almost comes to a screeching halt due to the weather. Can't pour concrete when its too cold! Bring on the snow, ice and sub-freezing temps! We actually get to spend time together and he helps with the housework and Benjamin. Huge blessing right now as I am about 3 weeks from having our lil girl and the late pregnancy aches and pains have showed up.
Benjamin's first real experience with snow, wasn't sure at first, but he loves to eat it!
