Since my last post a few months back about rediscovering who I am after infertility, much has happened. Thankfully all positive things.
Miracle turned 2, we experienced Thanksgiving, Christmas, & the New Year with a toddler in tow. For once, the holidays were celebrated with full hearts instead of treatment, recovery, loss, infertility or pregnancy discussions. Decisions about the future of my career path have been a hot topic, along with the educational path Miracle will embark on in the years to come. As a former educator with a passion for learning, it is of the utmost importance to me that he receives nothing but the best in this regard.
I am well on my way to getting used to my new normal and it is great. My days at home with Miracle are filled with cooking, baking, coloring, bike rides, & exploring outdoors. We love baking new recipes together, trying out all types of crafts, and getting messy playing outside in the dirt. Some of Miracle’s favorite things to do are ride his “mow-mow,” fix things around the house with his tools, listen to baby shark songs, and paint anything and everything he can. I do not miss the hustle and bustle of the old 9 to 5 I used to live at all.
2019 has brought solid confirmation and peace that our family is now complete, that being a stay at home mom is exactly what I want to be right now, and that the traditional educational system that I once taught in for many years may not be the best fit for our son (more to come on this later). It has also brought a sense of renewed gratefulness for my life and all I have been blessed with. I am not sure what this post is really trying to say, other than all is well here, and I hope all is well with you too if you are reading this. XOXO
