Being a stay at home mom

Just for this week, I'm a stay at home mom. Next week, I have to go back to work. But this week, its all about fun and frolic. Its only Wednesday morning, and check out what we've done already:

Painted Christmas ornaments
My laundry is caught up (usually there is a large pile of clothing in this area)
We've played dress-up
Decorated cookies inspired by the Pioneer Woman
Made our annual gingerbread house

I've been working on some hand-made Christmas presents
I've also cooked healthy meals - this one is whole-wheat pasta, low fat alfredo sauce, and grilled chicken.
We've made more cookies - these are yummy butter cookies.
And, of course G has gotten her homework finished before dinner every night. I've also had a good workout every day (gotta burn off all the cookie sampling I've been doing). Its been fun, and I love it! I wish I never had to go back to work. :( Oh well . . . I'll just have to enjoy it while I can.

You got through the laundry pile? Even the summer clothes? WOW!

You are much more productive as a stay at home mom than I am. Those are gorgeous cookies, they wouldn't last 5 minutes at my house!

wow you would be the best SAHM. I get all motivated the night before but then end up spending all day in pajamas and checking blogs/facebook.
