Today's Prompt for the Blog Dare 2012 from Bloggy Mom is to write about the Best Aspect of My Life...
Fortunately for me, this did not require any thought at all! The best aspect of my life is that I get to be at home with my children! I don't have to wake up early every morning, rushing to get ready for work, dragging the kids out of their slumber, and rushing them out the door, so that some other person can enjoy the pleasure of spending more time with my children than I do.
I love that I get to be there with them first thing in the morning, throughout the day and to pick them up at the end of the school day.
Don't get me wrong, I have my days where I find myself daydreaming of what it was like to be in the presence of adults, but those moments pass, and I enjoy the fact that I get to be with my children.
I love that if we want to stay in our PJ's all morning we can, if we want to cuddle and watch movies on a rainy day, we can. We can craft, bake, build forts, go on hikes, take trips to the zoo, beach or library...we can be whoever and whatever our hearts feel like any given day.
I don't have to worry about calling in sick when a child is sick, or handing over one and a bit of a pay-check to daycare. I don't have to drive in rush hour traffic, and I don't have to miss important school and sporting events.
The best aspect of my life is being a stay-at-home mom!
