Loving to be a SAHM

I love to be a stay-at-home-mom on days like these. Take a music class... then run to the museum to enjoy free museum days... [Museum of Science and Industry has free admission until Jan 31] Especially now that Ela is 13 months old and she can walk.

So it is not a stay-at-home!!! situation really, but I enjoy these things. I enjoy my kids' dragging me from exhibit to exhibit instead of me showing them the way. I enjoy the fact that it takes us 2 hours to get from the music class to the museum. I enjoy watching my little daughter trying to imitate my son climbing a wall :P

It's unfair that in this economy we "have to" have two incomes to live even a moderate life style, with a house in a good neighborhood, some extracurricular activities for kids and maybe a private school.

So I feel lucky and savor the days like these as much as I can, since this is temporary, until ve deplete all of our savings.

I know exactly how you feel. I'm able to stay at home for a little while with my kid and I absolutely adore taking him to the Children's Museum and the park and those kinds of daily activities. The time we have with them is so brief and it's so much FUN to play.
