SAHM Adventures ...

I never imagined that I would be a Stay At Home Mom, I was just sure I would have a career and my children would be with family or a really great pre-school. But as God often likes to remind me (very often) my plans are not my own! At first it took some adjustment to "feel" successful as a SAHM, but today I could not be more thankful, joyful, whatever -ful, about being a SAHM!! I LOVE my time with our kiddos and would not trade this experience for all the money someone (or a "career") could offer me!

Some fun SAHM adventures lately have included:
*play dates with new VA friends (so thankful for this)
*gym time (kids love the childcare worker and she loves them too!)
*MOPS (mother's of preschooler's ministry)
*intense matchbox car races
*big sister little brother adventures (I'm sure Owen will have pay back in the near future)
*stuffed animal play dates (Owen says - mon-dey, papa puppy, and, teddy bwear
*tea parties
*bible devotions (loving Eliana's bible she got for birthday and her favorite story is Jonah and the whale)
*ballet lessons (what Eli looks forward to all week)
*lego building
*family game time (so fun that Eliana has reached the age to play board games)
*on the spot science lessons (explaining to Eliana how the earth rotates around the sun)
*lots of giggles and hugs
*and on and on...

I just have been reminded daily lately what a blessing SAHM adventures are, and I can't wait to share more with you!

Prayers and Blessings - Dawn

Great post Dawn! While I am a SAHNYM (Stay At Home Not Yet Mom), I can still relate. I never in a billion years thought I would be a stay at home anything... but after my call to ministry, God has really revealed that he DOES have a plan for my life. And everything IS a blessing.

So here's to SAHM and SAHNYM adventures. :-) Thanks for sharing your heart!
