Having 3 hasn't been much different to me than 2 or even 1. As I have said before, Jackson rocked our world and that hasn't really changed much. Until he no longer has my personality I don't think that will change. Maternity leave was super busy, but as usual I had lots of help from the grandmothers!! God bless Gaga and Sheshe. I would not have made it without them. So now that I am back in adult world (queue the exciting music) I will take you through some of my favorite pictures of the last 6 weeks of Miller Mayhem party of 5!
Then a few days later I sent him this picture to let him know he could start with the Rolex on the left. It will be my "done with residency" present along with a fabulous Mediterranean vacation. On a yacht. Once a year. Ok, maybe not once a year, but you get my drift. Oh, and to top off my solo indoor "cookout" I set the smoke detectors off. Luckily my kids can sleep through anything. But, it was a "don't jump off the cliff" moment for sure.
All in all maternity leave was great, but I am thankful to be back and work. God made me to work outside the home (luckily for our bills). I have SO much respect for women that stay home. It is the hardest job in the world and I couldn't do it. Maybe one day when the kids are in school I can stay home, alone. Ha ha! But seriously, to me, being a stay at home mom is so much harder. At least at work I can go to the bathroom alone, write this blog while I eat my lunch, click over to foxnews.com and read the latest headlines, and see other adults. I am sure there are people that judge me for not being the stay at home kind, but that's fine. I'm sure my kids are cuter and smarter than theirs so they can live with that! :) But I am just being honest and I try my best to be honest and not make it sound like it's always roses over at the Miller household. Because 'ain't nobody got time for that.' Being a mother/parents is hard for everyone, no matter the circumstance, but when you see their little faces you know it's all worth it. So keep it real other there moms! We all know there are some days you want to jump off the cliff.
