Today I got up with the husband
and packed his lunch
Too 1950's for you?
Not for me
It was a big moment- I felt like I had made it
I am officially the House Manager of the Sjuts residence
and I am lovin' my new post
I loved being a nanny
I loved being at home and taking care of the house
I like to grocery shop and clean
I had some good teachers in this art of making a home function smoothly
And now I get to do if for reals in my own house!!!
To Do Lists have become my new favorite
and my laundry no longer piles up and stares at me with angry eyes
I can cook a nice meal for us instead of eating Arby's for the third time in a week.
I have started clipping coupons and making PB& J sammy's instead of eating out
I wear a lot of sweatpants right now but this WILL not be my uniform after the baby comes
I have to make sure of this- for Ryan's sake
To my husband I say thank you for this opportunity to stay at home with my baby
Because for 10 years there is nothing I have wanted more
Thank you for saving for us to be able to afford this luxury
Thank you for trusting me to do what is right for our family
and knowing me well enough to see that I will be back to snapping pictures
and making money again in no time
But most of all...
Thank you for giving me this little baby growing inside of me and making my dreams come true!
