Staying Home: My One-Year Anniversary
This week marks an important week in our lives – it’s my one-year anniversary of being a stay-at-home mom!
Miles may not know his letters – and Alice isn’t the greatest at counting – but we still say it’s the best decision we’ve ever made.
In honor of this anniversary – I’m sharing an email that I sent to several of my friends last year after our first official day at home.
Anna’s First Day!
I was very excited for my first day as a stay-at-home mom! I loaded up the kids, and we drove to the Kenwood Towne Centre. I’ve heard that all the fanciest moms hang out there with their kids. I was positive that I’d meet other moms and kids – maybe even join some kind of a special stay-at-home mom club at the mall.
We could spend hours drinking Starbucks, shopping and letting our kids run around the fountain.
But for some reason none of the moms at the mall would talk to me.
And despite the fact that Alice had a smile on her face and Miles brought suckers to share with the other kids, the moms wouldn’t let their kids play with my kids…
Staying home might be tougher than I thought…
