Spring Brights and Mom Thoughts

The little blogging vacation I took lasted a bit longer than I'd planned, sorry. I wish work were that flexible. "You know [boss] those couple days I took? Well, it turns out I felt like being gone a little longer than that. Oops!" If anyone has a job like that, do share. And send me an application. 

Actually, my new job is going pretty well, and most days I enjoy it. However, it's always after a few days off (or even just a weekend) that I wish and wonder about being a stay-at-home mom. It's not something that's financially feasible for us right now, but I think if it were I would at least give it a try. We're very fortunate to have wonderful child care, and I know that Jona is in excellent hands when while Aaron and I are working. However, my pre-child self couldn't have imagined how much I miss that kiddo during the day! Weekends go by too fast, and I feel like evenings are too short (especially when bed time is before 7:00). Just like I'm sure there are days when stay-at-home-moms look at working moms with envy, this working mom thinks the grass is looking pretty green over on their side.

What are your thoughts on working vs staying at home with your kids (or future kids)?
