I get to hold my baby as much as I want, capture his smiles, wipe away his tears, hear his baby chatter, and snuggle up with him on my chest with his small curled up body feeling the weight of him falling asleep. I get the honor of being a stay at home mom.
I don’t have to miss his firsts and ache from missing out. I don’t have to wonder if he is safe and if he misses mommy. I don’t have to share him with another person other then us. Because I get the peace of being a stay at home mom.
I get to create memories with him every day and watch the wheels turn in his mind when he learns something new. I get to teach, make, and explore with him. I get the adventure of being a stay at home mom.
I don’t have to worry about him not being fed or being lonely. I don’t have to wonder if he is applauded for each mile stone he conquers because I’ll be there. I get the joy of being a stay at home mom.
Motherhood is an honor, adventure and joy it comes with a peace when we stop and slow down and embrace the beauty of it all.
