You Help Me Stand Up For Myself

It wasn't until I started listening to you four years ago that I realized it was okay that I wanted my career to be that of a stay-at-home-mom.  I was working as a dog trainer but I always knew I wanted to have babies, and to stay at home to raise them and take care of my man.

When I met my husband, we both realized that we wanted a lot of the same things.  Recently, I had my first Mother's Day, and after endlessly spoiling me all day, my husband looked at me lovingly and said "I appreciate that you take care of our house, but I'll never complain about a mess.  It means the world to me that you take care of our little girl every day."  My husband and I were both raised by babysitters and are determined to give our children a childhood full of FAMILY and fun memories.

You helped me pick an amazing man to be by husband and best friend.  You give me the courage every day to stand up myself when I'm questioned on what I "do" all day, or when am I going back to work?  I have the best job in the world.  I'll continue to listen to you and hopefully you will help me keep my sanity, because the toddler years are coming soon!
