So now that my kids are older, I think I want to be a stay at home mom. I took the day off so that I could participate in my youngest son's field day which didn't start until 12:30. It made for an awesome day. I got up in time to get both my boys to school, and then went for a 4.25 mile run. I then ate breakfast, bathed the dogs, cleaned some of the house, did some laundry, and headed to the school for field day.
I was tasked with the ostrich egg toss. For those who don't know, it's a race where you carry an egg on a wooden spoon, except this one was a very large egg. It was so much fun to watch the kids try to balance the egg on the spoon as the raced to the finish line. 2 hours and many classes later, it was time to watch the tug of war event. Hunter's team ended up in second.
My day didn't end with field day. I had to bring paperwork to my oldest and then do some grocery shopping. I was home a little after my youngest came home from school, and since I was home he was able to let his friend come inside to play video games. Oh, and I also did 2 loads of laundry. If I did this every day, I would be so productive, but since I work, I'm to tired to do anything after work.
Unfortunately, this is only a dream, we can't afford for me to stay home, and I think I would feel guilty if I put all the financial burden on my husband. But it's a dream - funny I didn't have this dream when the boys were little.
