So, it's been about a year now since I quit teaching and became a full time mom. I just love it, but it did get some getting used to! The first few months we watched a little too much tv, the house was a wreck, and there was little organization in my life. This was hard on me. When Troy reached about 5 months I was able to pick myself up a little bit. I started working out again, scrapbooking, and a new hobby: couponing. This was good to start getting my life back in order. Troy still wasn't sleeping, and there wasn't much cleaning going on; but my kids were being played with and loved. That is always number one on my list.
I had a few friends try to talk me into Pinterest. I held off for quite a while. I was still a bit over-whelmed with life and felt like it would just add "things to do" on my "things to do" list. I gave in, and it has been in inspiration. I have found some great recipes, which has upped my cooking, useful cleaning and organization tips, and fun things to do with the kids. I have promised myself that I would not just "pin" but also do the pins.
What a change has come over our house. My mom has always teased me because I like to be organized, plan, and follow through with my plans. See why I became a teacher? That was one of the hardest things I've dealt with since being a stay at home mommy. I really don't have deadlines and just let myself go. I have now created a weekly planning paper that helps me plan meals, cleaning, workouts, and activities. I have made a 2-week cleaning list and kept with it for 6 weeks! I have started working out everyday; even if its just 20 minutes. All these things make me feel better about myself and I feel like I am doing what I am supposed to do. I still spend most of my time on the floor or outside playing with the little cuties of mine! Its amazing how quickly I can clean and I meal plan mostly on Sundays when Chris is home. I love being organized and having certain things that I know I need to do everyday.
I loved teaching and will never forget those year. I feel that teaching has made me a better mommy and I learned so much by doing it. I am glad to have the opportunity to be home with my boys everyday.
