Yeah. It's not all it's cracked up to be. Having a job and being a mom is not fun. For me. Props to moms that can do it but I am counting down the days till I'm done working and can be home with Maggie all the time. I won't feel guilty not paying my family to babysit. I won't dread coming home to a dirty house and I won't let the clean laundry take over Maggie's room because the last thing I want to do is fold it because then I have to put it away. And let's face it: putting away laundry is the WORST.
And I can spend all afternoon planning dinner or scrapbooking. Or just playing with Maggie.
Here's to ringing out the end of the 2013 with me working fewer and fewer hours each week. And enjoying this fall weather with colonel Brandon and the Maggs by watching lots of movies and going to the pumpkin patch behind our house. Right in our backyard and it's fabulous.
