When I have forms that ask my occupation, I write in "mother" or "stay at home mom." Why? B/c it is sooooo important.
Today, is my #1's ELEVENTH birthday. He was given breakfast in bed. His request: pancakes, eggs, and sausage.
Then, as we were all getting ready for the day, it hit me....BIRTHDAY TREAT FOR SCHOOL.
I had none prepared.
But luckily for us, we have candy on the shelves, a crafty stay at home mom who can take the extra minutes before the bus to stamp tags, cut curling ribbon and tie together 3 twizzlers (which are allergy free to 99% of school kids) with the help of one of my kids. (Hey, I even checked DD's homework while the tying was going on!) Then, as we walked down to the bus stop, we had an assembly line. #1 handed me a bundle. I curled the ribbon. Then #2 put it in the large ziplock bag. Repeat.
We had plenty of time to spare before the bus came too!
I'm typically completely on the ball about things. Once in a while, we all miss things. But being home means I can serve breakfast in bed, tuck notes into lunches each day, walk the kids to the bus stop, serve in school and around the community, and still have moments to myself.
Although, I'm always happy to have snowdays. Bring on the snow!!
Now...I must rush off to do my daily biking!
