What I Do

Each morning I wake up to my husband getting ready for work (of course I've already been awake at least once throughout the night to feed my bay-bay) and I think to myself, "I'm so glad I don't have to get ready for my job."   I always thought I would love working at my career.  In fact, while I was preggo with Navia I was in the search for a job, thinking I would love to work even when we had a baby.  I was SO WRONG!  Never, never, never would I want to leave my baby during the day.  Honestly, I don't think I would be able to.  I'm not strong enough.  I would cry every day and hate life.  I was so humbled (my pride was squashed) by the fact when I finally had her and spent time with her I LOVED it.  I'm a quality time person so I believe by me staying home with her, we are developing a stronger relationship (even though she can't talk yet, only smile and scream).  
As for my husband, he works full-time.  He goes to school full-time.  He is a full-time husband and dad.  In all reality, he doesn't get a break ever.  I'm even more humbled when I think about how much he does to support us  and how much I do which I much less.  Yes, I know being a mom is important and a full-time job...but it's really fun so there are more times than not where I don't realize I'm "working".  
What I'm saying is, my husband is awesome!  He's the best leader I could have imagined...I'm beyond blessed by him.  
Song of Solomon 5:10-  "My beloved is radiant and ruddy, distinguished among ten thousand."
As for me, here is what my typical day consists of.  I love it.
