Same Ole Thursday
Well today is my first "official" day as a stay at home mom.
Although, it doesn't feel any different than usual because I've has Thursdays off since Eli was born.
And in all actuality most of the time I felt like a stay at home mom who just happened to go into the office 20 hours a week.
I imagine it will feel weird Sunday night when I realize I dont have to wake up and go into the office in the morning, but other than that everything feels pretty normal.
I've had a feeling of excitement in me, knowing that I will now be home with Eli full time. I was hoping Eli felt the same way but upon picking him up from the babysitter's house yesterday he screamed and cried for his DADA like I was some crazed lady trying to abduct him.
Nope, just the mom who GAVE UP EVERYTHING FOR YOU.
Just kidding, I didn't give up everything, just almost everything.
Eli is pretty good at entertaining himself and likes to play alone for the most part, so in between playing with him here and there I've gotten a fair amount of cleaning done and even sent out my Scentsy team newsletter.
I also started meal planning for next week because yesterday Luke said:
"I say this in the most supportive, non-nagging husband way I know possible, but are you going to start cooking again anytime soon?"
I'm still waiting to do that "sit on the couch while eating bon bons and watching TV" thing that people say stay at home moms do.......
