Best. Rainy Day. Ever.

I've wish I could say that I have always enjoyed being a stay at home mom.  But that's just not true.  It was a really hard transition for me.  I enjoyed working.  I loved having the freedom to go out with my friends whenever I wanted.  I was one of those who took off for the weekend to see a concert in another state.  My life was to busy for a dog....let alone a child. 

Then I got accident.  I always new I wanted children.  But when they started rolling in...well, I wasn't sure what to do with them.  I even resented my husband for "getting" to go to work. 

It took me a few years to truely love being a stay at home mom.  Not sure when my "ah-ha" moment was.  Probably a combination of several things.  Moved back to OK to be closer to family and friends.  Found the most amazing group of women at TMOM's (Tulsa Mothers of Multiples) and now have a fantastic network of moms.  I can honestly say there is nothing I would rather do than take care of my children each and everyday.  They have taught me more than I can ever teach them.  I am so thankful to have a husband who works so hard to allow me the opportunity to stay home and watch these amazing little people grow up. 

Here is our morning in pictures.  Best.  Rainy day.  Ever. 



Not sure which was more fun:  painting or clean up time.

Gavin is not known for his patience.  Drying his painted noodles.

Modeling his finished product....obviously bored by all my picture taking.
