Sometimes I go through my days thinking that I am a stay-at-home mom. Wishing, perhaps. Perhaps you think I'm a stay-at-home mom, too? Looking through my blog archives, it certainly seems like I spend all of my time focused on parenting.
But I don't.
I am a work-at-home mom, a title that comes with its own benefits and drawbacks. Oh, sometimes I pine over the fact that motherhood will never be my only job - I really do. I wonder how I can balance this small business and homeschooling. Many women I know are incredible stay-at-home mamas, and I wonder if I will ever be able to dedicate that amount of time to my boys.
But ... then again ... from my boys' perspecitve, they have a stay-at-home mama and a stay-at-home daddy. One of us is always with them. So while Patrick and I may split a (more than) full-time job, our boys are lucky to have quality time with both of us.
Co-parenting. Co-working. Co-cooking. Co-cleaning. Co-everything. Patrick and I are partners. Together, we will make the "homeschooling parent." Together, we make sure food is on the table, three meals a day. Together, we magange and build Sew Liberated. Together, we hold our family together through very tough circumstances. Together, we laugh. A lot.
Love. It's more than a flutter of excitement in your heart. It's everything else, too.
I love this guy.
