But then I got pregnant.
And each week my love for this little baby grew and grew, and even before he was born I couldn't bear the thought of going back to work. We luckily were given this chance to move to the Netherlands and I didn't have to choose. There have of course been huge sacrifices, most of which revolve around grandparents. But the fact that I get to wake up each day and know that Liam gets to spend the day with his mom is priceless. I wouldn't trade this time for anything. It is a luxury I have every intention of taking advantage of for as long as possible. So I still get to do what I love every day, but what I love has changed a little. It still involves kids (just mostly centered around one, little, chubby, drooling one), lots of patience, and trying to be the best
So my thankful thing today is that I get to be a SAHM. Not all moms want to do it, not all moms can, even when they want to . . . I'm just grateful that we're in a position where I want to be at home with Liam and it is totally possible. #soblessed
