For today...

...here are some mommy and baby pictures I recently took from my iPhone...

And then there's this picture I took last week...
When I saw that sign I got sad... that young mothers need to work to make money...
... and have to watch their kids grow online.

Well, at least there's that.

(And don't email me... I know that lots of mothers need to work - and thank heavens for good daycares!)

Sweet babes!

I am SO thankful that I don't have to work and that my hubby supports and encourages my dream of being a stay at home mom... but if I HAD to work to make money (which would have to be a lot of money, considering the price of daycare these days...), I would want to work somewhere that I could see my child throughout the day.

And I would probably cry every time I logged on to that website.

I went back to work when my one-and-only son was 2. Was grateful I had those first two years at home with him. Was also very grateful that I was able to have him in daycare in the same building where I worked in downtown Calgary. We were able to have lunch together almost every day, and I could pop down and see him for a few minutes during the day on my "break." We rode the C-train together to and from work every day, and actually got to hang out a lot. Also, I was able to pop in at the daycare very easily if there was ever a problem. So I was very blessed - had the benefit of the second income, along with the benefits of having my little one very close by.

Post Debate Thoughts

The first presidential debate almost got me off the Trump Train. Well, I was a reluctant Trump person from the beginning. I didn't vote...
