SAHM boosting

So now I feel compelled, by guilt, fairness, and genuine happiness (all very common motivations for me as a mother), to list a few of the easy and pleasant things about working as a SAHM (stay at home mother):

1. Spending all day with two people that I love more than life itself.
2. Having the priviledge financially, as well as life-plan-y, to be there all the time for our children and so having the ability to create the the environment I want for our children down to the last detail (not that I always take advantage of that opportunity..ahem) and knowing their rhythms throughout the day.
3. Hugs and cuddle time
4. Very flexible schedule
5. During the good parts of the year, being able to take advantage of all the beautiful days outside
6. Exploring the world through the eyes of little children- it's hilarious and refreshing
7. Living in a service-to-children mode is seriously good for my soul
8. This job is great preparation for a career in ANYTHING because it stretches me so much in areas that school doesn't touch-emotional maturity, intense responsibility, heartfelt teaching skills, etc, etc.

If I had more time, this list would go on and on, but it's back to work for me.
