Stay at home mom

Technically I’m figuring this out little by little every day. I quit my full-time job in May of 2017 to stay home and raise/homeschool my 3 children. It changed the dynamic of our family more than I thought it would. I realize now, how much I was missing before. But for me, I had to go through everything I went through to appreciate being at home. I have a lot to learn, but I am learning. I’m cooking as much as I can- we still have those night outs where I just don’t feel like making another meal. I’m keeping (trying to keep) up on laundry, where before I just let it pile up, too exhausted to put the effort into caring. And I’m also learning about parenting, in a new light. I’m learning to be more patient with the kids. To discipline differently and more responsibly so that the kiddos actually learn from it. To teach to their hearts instead of reacting to their behavior. To appreciate and love the good times. And to make it a point to go on new adventures to have good times. In time, I hope to share with you the tools of the trade. To give a good perspective on that verse in Prov 22:6,  Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
