Stay At Home Mom

     So I have been MIA on here for quite a while!! I just did not realize it had already been over a year!! I know in one of my early blog posts, I blogged about becoming a stay at home mom after the birth of my first son. However, instead of leaving my job, I was given  promotion that I could not pass up at the time!! I have spent the last year as education coordinator for my school. I have enjoyed the challenge and helping the teachers succeed in their classrooms. With that being said my last day work was officially Friday August 28, 2015. I am so excited to see what the future holds for me and my family!
     Today is my first day on the job as stay at home mom!! So far we have not had any major catastrophes! We had a grand adventure to the store to pick up some items my husband needs to finish building a dresser. We have also had some fun play time. And as I am writing this Nater Tater is currently napping!! Bless nap time!! Nater Tater has been in daycare for the past year. In the last several months of daycare Nater Tater decided that he did not need to sleep for more than 10-30 minutes. This had us having some very long evenings where he was too tired to function! Today, however he has already been asleep for over an hour. I do hope that we can continue this. His poor little body needs the rest!!
     Some super exciting news! We have baby #2 on the way!! I will be having a C-Section of Tuesday September 15, 2015! That is just two weeks away!! EEK!!! I am excited and nervous about how drastic our lives are about the change!! I have so much to do and not a lot of time to do it in! My poor husband has been overworking himself for months with projects to get everything ready! I just hope that our very long to do list will get smaller and maybe completed before Baby J's big arrival.
     Since we are having another boy we are moving Nater Tater out of the nursery and into another room that we are turning into his big boy room. I am afraid that we are going to spring too many changes on him at once, but hopefully we will have smooth transitions! We are almost to the point that we can move Nater Tater into his big boy room. I hope he likes sleeping in his big boy bed instead of the crib! This could make nap times more challenging to mommy though!!
     I will be posting pictures of Nater Tater's big boy room soon!! For now I am going to get back to my embroidery machine. I am making closet dividers for Nater's big boy room! :)
