A Blogging Hiatus

So this summer I took a blogging hiatus….pretty much a hiatus from anything besides my boys.  At the end of the school year, I vowed to spend as much time with my boys as I possibly could.  I have truly been living up to that and loving that being a teacher gives me summers off.  It definitely doesn’t mean that I work less, because you can ask my 5 year old and he’ll tell you “Mommy works too much.” But it does give me a chance to have my career and be a 3 month out of the year stay at home mommy.  With the boys being 5 and 2, this summer has been extra special.

We have done a lot…..   Roger Williams Zoo, Sesame Place, The Maryland Zoo, Connecticut Science Center, swim lessons, many pool dates at my parent’s house, numerous cook outs and parties, plus much more!!!  I have had an amazing time with them.  Even more special moments have been shared each day….when wanted I have snuggled the boys and napped with them; it’s the moments of one hugging me or falling asleep on my shoulder as the other reaches out to hold my hand that I can’t trade for anything.  It’s the little arts and crafts I have done with them that gets many “Thanks Mommy – this is so cool.”  It’s all the little hugs between the boys and the fights that I have witnessed and broken up.  Plus all the family time with the hubby when he comes home from work or has the day off.

It’s all these moments that I look forward to all year.  You might ask, you don’t get these moments during the year when you work?  I do…but I don’t have as clear of a mind as I do now – just focusing on them!  During the school year, I look forward to picking up the boys from daycare and being greeted with running hugs and squeals!  Don’t get me wrong, I love my job – but I love my boys and family more.

So this summer has been a hiatus from everything except the pure enjoyment of my boys and family.


About alyshacarmody

I'm an art teacher aka working mom that has two wonderful boys, ages 4 and 9 months. My husband is a police officer who works nights; so I find that my style of parenting isn't always what others approve of, but it works for us! I am very crafty so I am always finding new projects to try and think that I am "green" or at least try to be. My philosophy is live laughing and loving. This blog is intended as an adventure so we'll see how it goes...
