I officially worked the last day at my bakery one month ago. Life has drastically changed so much in these past 4 weeks. We had the clean out of the bakery, Christmas, New Years, and our vacation, so this feels like my first official week as a stay at home mom.
To say it simple: it has been amazing.
I had no idea what to expect transitioning from working so many hours + weekends to spending every single day at home.
Having my own business required me to constantly be thinking of what needed to be done. Something at the bakery ALWAYS needed to be done. Between ordering supplies and the pile of emails left my brain in constant full mode. For the first time this week I have felt 100% in “mom mode”.
I have enjoyed not rushing the boys to bed so I could be asleep by 7:30.
I have enjoyed staying up to have an actual conversation with Will instead of my 1:00 a.m. alarm clock hovering over my head.
I have enjoyed a slower pace to my day without a constant rush trying to fit everything in on my day off. It has been so wonderful. Wonderful to be a mom and enjoy everything the week brings.
I know staying at home is just a temporary chapter for us until we figure out where my next step will be, but for right now I am soaking up every moment.
Like making cookies, pancakes, muffins, and lots of yummy food everyday! Because let’s be honest, I truly miss baking so much, but have enjoyed baking for my boys even if it takes double the time with all their little hands helping!
Life has a funny way of leading you into something you least expect to be such a good fit for where life is right now.
I never in a million years would have thought I could feel so happy and content being home with my 3 kids. Until my next chapter begins I will soak up every minute of this one.
