Summer Blog Challenge Day 19! {Some Things You are Proud of From the Last Few Days!}

Today's Topic: Name some things you are proud of from the last few days.

Ok, so this may sound extremely pathetic, but it makes me proud. I am a stay-at-home mom and have been since Noah was born. BUT Brian has also only worked weekends (Saturday, Sunday, Monday) since Noah was about 2 months old. So he's usually home four days a week, every week. So I have lots of help with the kiddos. Well now that Brian is training for his new job he's working Monday through Friday like most people, which also means I am full time stay-at-home mom all by myself with the kiddos all day now.

What makes me proud is that I am handling it well so far. I have a lot of fun activities planned to get us out of the house and so the boys can still enjoy the summer even though daddy isn't around as much. When Isaac was first born until just recently I was scared to get out of the house with both boys alone. Trying to keep a toddler and an infant happy while trying to shop or whatever just scared me to death. But now I am over that and plan to get out of the house a lot while hubby is working! Like I said, kind of pathetic, but I'm proud of myself.

Today we are taking a trip to the park to play and maybe a picnic! Should be fun!These two can't be that hard to keep happy right?! (Don't let their sweet faces fool you!)

 If you are a stay-at-home mom what kind of things do you do to keep the kiddos happy and occupied?


  1. That is absolutely something to be proud of!! Being on your own with two kids can be stressful and overwhelming!


  2. Cute! I have two boys as well & the first few months we were home-bodies, but since the weather has improved we've been on the go a lot! Believe it or not, I have season passes to Busch Gardens williamsburg & we love to go up there! We try to do 3 playdates/adventures a week.

  3. Now that it is summer, we have a Season pass for Knott's Berry farm and their water park.We also go to the library once a week, play dates, park...all that good stuff! Love your blog by the way. I am a new follower.

  5. Being a stay at home mom rocks. :)
