I love to be a stay-at-home-mom on days like these. Take a music class… then run to the museum to enjoy free museum days… [Museum of Science and Industry has free admission until Jan 31] Especially now that my daughter is 13 months old and she can walk.
So it is not a stay-at-home!!! situation really, but I enjoy these things. I enjoy my kids dragging me from exhibit to exhibit instead of me showing them the way. I enjoy the fact that it takes us 2 hours to get from the music class to the museum. I enjoy watching my little daughter trying to imitate my son climbing a wall 😛
It’s unfair that in this economy we “have to” have two incomes to live even a moderate life style, with a house in a good neighborhood, some extracurricular activities for kids and maybe a private school.
So I feel lucky and savor the days like these as much as I can, since this is temporary, until we deplete all of our savings.
