I am so, so happy I clicked over to the blog Alli-n-Son from Sarah’s Your Life, Your Blog carnival this week. The title of Alli’s post–about moving from being a work-outside-the-home-mom to a stay-at-home-mom–definitely spoke to me!
So I’ve been browsing back through some of her posts and read one about her plans for her first day as a stay-at-home-mom. Wow. Now that’s something to think about!
I have dreamed about being a SAHM for a long time. Long before Libbie was in my belly, long before Mr. V and I had even talked about marriage, my heart was to be at home with my future children. I am so, so excited that this dream will finally be coming to fruition as soon as we can sell our house and get out of Nashville and to Chattanooga.
The thing is, I don’t KNOW Chattanooga! I could probably tell you what I would do for my first day at home in Nashville. Maybe go to the zoo, plan a lunch with Jill, walk around Radnor Lake with Libbie in the Ergo, and take a long and blissful nap. I’ve always wanted to take my babies to a marionette show or story time at the gorgeous Main Library, hang out with a MOPS group, and go to Wednesday morning Bible study at church.
But, I’m not going to be here, in this city that I know. And really, I don’t know much about Chattanooga. I know we live sort of near a mall. We have a sweet little backyard to play in. I know where Target is and of a cute little thrift store. I know I want to get year passes for the aquarium and the children’s museum.
For that first day, though? I have no clue. I’d be happy to take any suggestions from those local to Chattanooga!
Really, it doesn’t matter. Because I will be home. I am thrilled.
