I was thinking to myself that I'd actually like to be a stay at home mom only once all the kids were in school full time.
Then I sat down next to my husband to review the household budget and my eyes fell upon a gift that my sister-in-law gave me for my first-born. She's an incredible artist and turned this box into a treasure chest. Inside the glass is a plaque that reads:

Suddenly, thankfully, I realized that years from now I'll have forgotten all about how quickly the floor gets messy, the germs breeding in the cracks of the high-chair and how much time was spent washing and drying and folding. What I will remember is a moment of belly-laughing from all three kids, seeing my baby boy hug the cat who tolerates everything, the moment my oldest shared her special blanket with her sister and so on and so forth.
And so you will you.
