When I had Jax I had to go back to work for about 6 weeks to finish out the school year. I thought my life was over. I seriously couldn't imagine how I would make it through the day without my little baby. I just knew that he was going to remember me leaving him and hate me forever. After my second year teaching, I quit and was officially a full-time mom.
I am so grateful that Chase works hard enough to make it possible for me to stay home and take care of our kids. I love that I get to see them grow and watch all the funny, cute, sweet things they do. BUT, I am kinda starting to feel strange about my life.
Honestly, most days we don't have a single thing that we have to do. Those days are nice every now and again, but every day? It can get old. And boring. I try to do something fun with these two little boys of mine every day, but I must say I am feeling bored. I am kind of feeling like I, Goldie, am ceasing to exist and being 'a mom' is taking over. It is a really strange feeling.
While it is sometimes nice, I feel strange about the fact that I could go the entire day without showering and changing out of my pajamas and no one would ever know. And, it wouldn't really matter because we don't have anywhere to go anyway. And, to make it worse my 2 1/2 year old, Jax, isn't the easiest to take places. Better put, he is the hardest to take anywhere. He is a wild man.
So, this post is not just a big complaint. Really. Things for me aren't that bad. Just getting a little boring and redundant. So, I need some help. This may sound ridiculous, but what do you do all day with your kids? :) I am going to write down a list of things that we do fairly often to share a few of my ideas, but that means in return you share yours - activities that are free and places to go that cost money are both welcome. I am getting desperate!!!
go to the park
go the the splash park
go to the pool
go on a walk
go the my parents'
go to my sister's
let Jax run through the isles of Target (I'm sure the employee's love this.)
jump on it
walk around the mall (both my kids love the stroller) and play at the mall play place
And, yeah...can't think of anything else. Maybe that is why I am getting so bored.
