Accidental SAHM?

The title of this post is how I've been feeling lately. I never really meant to become or was supposed to be a SAHM (stay at home mom), it just sort of happened.  As those who've been reading along for the past few years know, I was supposed to finish my degree and get a job. Instead we all know I got pregnant with our Little Miss within 2 weeks of finishing said degree.  Despite the pregnancy, it was still always in my mind that I'd be going back to work as soon as possible and thus I avoided getting involved in any type of activities that I deemed were for SAHMs.   I recently decided I just need to embrace this life change.  I've taken on some bigger volunteering opportunities that will look lovely on the resume once I do go back to the career gig.  It's nice to feel a little more content with where I'm at.

So there you have it....Liz: the accidental SAHM. :-)

In other news:

-My 2 super gorgeous babies were baptized on Sunday.  I was really nervous, but they did really well and neither of them cried and the Priest was pretty generous with the amount of water he poured on their heads. Little Miss wore the baptismal gown that I wore as a baby. It was big on my peanut, but she worked it. ;-) Matthew just wore a white polo shirt and dress pants. I nixed having him wear one of those all white sateen suits they sell. It just seemed silly for him.  Interesting tidbit: Matthew was the oldest of the 5 kids who were baptized and Julia was the youngest.

Well back to the grind. My Little Miss doesn't want to nap unless Momma is holding her. Which I'm pretty okay with since I want to savor every moment.

  1. I love that you had her wear the gown you wore. Both my kids have worn the gowns my brother and i wore. I love that 4 people have been baptized in a gown my mom made. Only reason Matthew let our son get baptized in a gown.
