dude MY FACE!!! ☠️🧟♀️
Interesting Life Choices We Make Sometimes…
If you were to tell the 2 years ago me, that I was going to be a stay at home mom I would have laughed at your face so hard, I graduated from Law School in 2017 and started job hunting but since I had moved in with my by then 4 year boyfriend to the city he is from, that didn’t help a lot with me looking for a job in a law firm I was in a new city where I didn’t know nobody (I still don’t) so, I was just mainly doing so pretty basic jobs like legal documents back in my home town but that require me to do a lot of travel.
Then my boyfriend had this brilliant idea Let’s Have a Baby he said, I was never a “have to have a baby to be happy” kind of woman, there was a time in my life when if you were to ask me I would have told you I was not going to be having any kids, it was just not something I thought I was made for, but when he said it well 🤷🏻♀ I don’t know what happened in my head but I just thought “why no?” and we stopped protecting, I know something I didn’t think it was going to happen so fast! Like I always had had issues with my period and had to go under hormonal treatment years ago to fix some stuff with my ovaries, so I thought that would probably make getting pregnant hard for me. Turns out me and my boyfriend are (were 🤪 I had my tubes cut now) very fertile.
I got pregnant by the end of the same month we started trying and also right when I started Steem so… you know a new marketing campaign could be Steem The Blockchain Were You Can Get Pregnant Fast LMAO.
When I got pregnant I still did some traveling to my home town and continued working, but by the end of my pregnancy my boyfriend got really overprotective and asked me to stop the traveling.
That Was When My Staying At Home Mom Phase Started
I was 8 months pregnant that was when I stopped traveling and well this is a small town where I don’t know anybody also staying at home is all you want to do when you have that big belly and feel like a huge cow then, the baby was born! I knew I wasn’t going to be able to travel with a little child as much as I did when it was just me, and of course being a breastfeeding mom would make me leaving the house hard as well I didn’t and still don’t want to leave my child in the care of another person and my boyfriend feels the same and he can afford to support me staying at home taking care of the little chubby that is his son.
So… Am I Happy Staying at Home?
all day every day 😅 is boobs time!!! also please acknowledge the dark circles under my eyes 🧟♀️
I am and... I am not.
I am happy, I haven’t miss a thing about my baby, I am able to breastfeed at demand and be there for him as he needs me, I spend all day playing with him and enjoying all the little new things he discovers every day, he brings me so much joy he makes my days so much better, I love him and love spending every single second of my day with him.
I am not happy to be at home all day every day 🤯 is something that is driving me crazy, I feel like all the stuff I learn in law school is leaving my mind little by little, I live in a routine, I wake up make breakfast, feed baby, play with baby, bath the baby, put baby to sleep, take a shower myself, chase after baby, cook lunch, do more chasing after the kid, play with him, bath the kid again, try to make him take a nap, fail miserably at it, chasing after him some more, cook diner, chase after kid one last time (yeah he is walking now so… chasing is all I do all day) put baby to sleep and then fight with my internet connection to try and do some curations and posting on steem 🤪
I know this will not be forever and that when the kid gets a little older I will be able to get more time to do more of my stuffs but omg I hate being here all day doing the same thing every day, even if I love doing the things I do, cause trust me chasing after the kid is actually fun.
I do try to go outside with the kid every other day so, he and I can enjoy getting out of the house even if is for 1 hour.
I will do a quick trip to my home town next week to visit my mom and sister, will take the kid to the beach and have a good time away from this house that should be fun!
