I am attempting to focus on my writing skills and blog about my adventures (if those actually ever happen) about being a Stay At Home Mama! I am excited about this because my main focus for the last year was simply getting through each day so I could start the next. I didn't have a real goal or activity to occupy my time, nothing constructive anyways. And I don't want to pass that on to my son. These days he's like a sponge, absorbing every detail of his surroundings and learning about the world from a knee-height perspective. If all he does is see mommy sitting at the computer playing games, then he's going to think that is what people do all the time. So in light of my sudden realization that in less than a month my baby becomes a toddler, I have decided that now is the time to get my butt into gear and be the best mom I can be for my little punk rocker.
I'd like to introduce you to Hayden! He will be 1 years old this month:
This is me and my Husband:
We have come a long way in our relationship together. Every day is a new challenge. He goes to Korea in January for a year and I won't be going with him. Before he volunteered to go to Korea, we decided this would be the best time to just do it, get it out of the way, and move on... after all, Hayden will be too young to remember his daddy being gone and I wont have that second child we plan on having, on top of this one, to take care of all by myself. Well I wont really be by myself. I will be staying at the loving mercy of my parents with them in their home. Thank god! Being alone with a toddler for a year sounds terrifying. I have few friends where we live right now. All of my closest friends are back home in West Palm Beach, FL. I can't wait to see them again, but I can wait not to see my husband for a whole year. Such is the life of the Air Force wife.
I'm in the process of completing a bunch of goals I've made for myself. I don't know where to start but at the top of my list is getting organized. First, I'll try to organize my goals and then go from there. Seems reasonably simple enough. ::crosses fingers:: I'll work on that tonight and update next chance I get. For now I can cross off starting a blog.
That's a glimpse into my life. Maybe you'll get to know me better as the days progress or maybe you'll just see a million posts about activities, food and crafting goals. Whatever the case I hope you enjoy it!
