My mom tells me that one of the happiest days of my life was the day I learned the word both. In the sense of “which dress would you like to wear Laura?” – me: “Both”. And “would you like cake or ice cream Laura?” – again, me: “Both”.
Today I find myself rejoicing that “Both” is the answer to the question of my heart “would you like to be a stay-at-home mom or work?”.
Thankful, thankful, thankful that the Lord sees fit to allow me to wear both dresses and eat cake AND ice cream today. Or you know, work while SBJ sleeps, run errands, clean the house, and prep dinner while he’s awake punctuated with a quick trip to the park, work again while he sleeps again and then some more when the babysitter comes in the afternoon.
