Wonderful

I have to say, I am having the time of my life with Betsy. I feel so fortunate that I am able to stay at home and be with her all the time. I couldn't imagine if I had to take her to daycare or some kind of babysitter while I worked. Not that I look down on anyone who has to do that. I worked in daycare for 5 years and there is nothing wrong with it. I understand there are parents who have no other option. However, mommy is always the best! I love getting to spend all day with just us and it's not a daycare provider playing with her, feeding her, putting her down for naps and teaching her. It's me.

I was doing a lot of reflecting lately and how different my life with be like with the triplets. Betsy is hitting that toddler stage and sometimes will do things to push her limits. There are days where I am frustrated by the time Tony gets home and I just need a moment alone. So this makes me feel guilty at times. If I had the triplets, I probably would not have a choice to go be alone. How would I do it all day by myself? If I get over-whelmed with one little girl, how about all three? Would it even be possible to stay at home? I am sure there are so many things that would be different.

There is nothing more wonderful to me than the beauty of Betsy. I adore everything about her. My step-mom told me the other day how good of a job I am doing taking care of Betsy and she loves the fact I am able to stay home. It's good to hear that. I appreciate the fact that someone notices how hard I work with Betsy and how much I do with her everyday. I try really hard. I know socialization is good for her and she gets to play with her friends at church every week and I am also getting ready to join a Moms Group during the day. She has a lot of family members that she plays with as well. We are so happy.

Thank you to my wonderful husband who works so hard at what he does so that I have the opportunity to stay at home with our baby. I love my little family!

I am so delighted that you get to stay home and spend your time with Betsy...there is nothing that can replace the time you spend together...

That IS wonderful that you get to stay home with her. I wish every day that I could do that. And yes, it is overwhelming sometimes with one kid or two or three and you do deserve and need a break sometimes. That is perfectly normal and you should never feel guilty about it. Enjoy!
