This morning, Seth’s preschool was cancelled due to inclement weather. Granted, they EXPECTED to have black ice on the roads but when we awoke, there was none. So, I called work and let them know I would not be available this morning. I spent the time with just me and my son. No phone calls, emails or even thinking about work. Since I’ve been on this journey towards being more home and family focused, this was the first opportunity I’ve had to taste what life may be like after Corporate America. And this was surprising, I didn’t like not having a structured schedule.
Today, I thought that I would be able to enjoy sleeping in a bit longer than usual, having timeto play, and getting laundry done. What I found was that 3 year-olds don’t sleep in (EVER), Legos never stay where you put them or stay where you don’t want them, and its tough to get motivated for laundry!
I was disappointed that the day wasn’t enjoyable and perfect. I realize that it was a silly expectation.
What I’ve come to realize is that being a stay at home mommy, I’m going to have to work extra hard to find and create structure in my new life.
