Thoughts for Thursday

School is back in session for my little one, and though, I’ll admit, I was like many parents who spent the last few weeks of summer looking forward to it, I’ve quickly come to regret that sentiment. I miss this little face!


I miss her cute little personality. She’s my main source of entertainment and inspiration while Matt is working during the day. Where else am I going to overhear someone say something this hilarious underneath their breath in response to being told that it’s dangerous to stand on that chair in the dining room?

“I eat danger for breakfast.”

I’ve officially become that annoying mom who volunteers to help with everything my child is even remotely interested in participating in just for the sole purpose of getting to spend more time with her. Within the last three weeks I have become her room mom at school, her troop leader at Girl Scouts and a helper every other week in her class at church.

I’m just obsessed with being there for her in every aspect that I can. I spent 7+ years being a single mother, which meant that I had to give up a lot of time with her in order to work to provide everything for her. Now that my wonderful fiancé has given me the incredible opportunity to be a stay at home mom, I’m soaking up every ounce of time with her that I can. I’m making up for lost time. I want to watch her grow up. I don’t want to miss anything ever again.

Maybe that sounds crazy, but I’m loving it. I feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to finally get to do this. I’m loving every minute of it.
