Two Months from Two

Fanny is 22 months old today. A few days ago I was busy doing some homeschool record keeping on my laptop... engrossed in some tiny, but important, details... when I felt her climb up next to me and snuggle into my side. I turned, and this was the view I had... she had put a hair band in her hair, a hair elastic on her arm as a bracelet, put her big sister's necklace around her neck, taken her bowl of (dry) Cheerios from the table, her favorite book and blankie... and hunkered down for the long haul. I suddenly had the feeling my baby had grown up, and I am so glad I'm at home with her, and did not miss one second of her babyhood. When I was a working mom I had many regrets. Since I've come home, I've not had one.

Aw, so cute! Funny, I just posted a similar picture of my almost-2-year-old yesterday! I can't believe it will be 2 years since we had those girls.

It's true...being a SAH, homeschooling mom is one of the toughest jobs...but 100% the most rewarding!!! :)
