I am really enjoying these first couple of days home with Max after 3 months of student teaching. I think maybe another reason student teaching was good for me is because I may have taken for granted how privileged and blessed I am to be able to stay home to raise my son and take care of our home.
When I was asked repeatedly by people around me if I found a teaching job yet, or what I'm going to do now, I almost felt ashamed to say that I'm going to be a stay-at-home mom. I quickly snapped out of that. Just because I'm not getting paid to work as a teacher or as anything else, it doesn't mean I'm not doing anything with my life. Although being a good mom is one of the most difficult jobs out there, I believe it's also the most rewarding.
Teaching has always been one of my dreams. I look forward to teaching once my children are grown and in school. For now, I'm enjoying my biggest dream of being married to the world's most wonderful man who wants me to stay home and take care of our children. If that means making big sacrifices, so be it. Daddy is our superhero.
We saw this comic in the newspaper and I had to share with all of you housewives out there :)
