Wordless Wednesday: Advantages of being a SAHM

My mind has been pondering my work mom life versus the two weeks of vacation I’m doing right now to be a stay-at-home mom (SAHM). A longer blog post of rambling will come in the next couple weeks on my advantages and disadvantages I have pondered. For today, I’m just relishing in our family time. Share your Wordless or Wordful Wednesday post below by linking up any photo or photos in a blog post you’d like to share. Visit others’ blogs, comment, link up and enjoy the day. 
 Yesterday our family time over the noon hour included a picnic in our small town park. “Daddy” and big brother joined the girls and I who walked over with the stroller packed with sandwiches and goodies.

Miss E and Miss A were fresh from hair cuts. E loves getting her hair done. She wants “long, long hair” but Miss Erin, her stylist, trimmed a couple inches off and I was happy. It’s much easier to manage.
Miss A has no patience for hair cuts. A quick trim and she jumped off the chair.
 Miss A would much rather keep herself busy with playing at the park than sitting for a hair cut. The girls favorite activity at the park is going up and down the old school slide that remains in the park since their dad once played on it, back in the “olden days” as our son says. 
Speaking of our son, he’s growing, eating, running, growing, eating, working, growing, eating and starting football. My cooking has paid off because following his sports physical this week he smiled at me and said, “Mom, I’ve gained 41 lbs. since last year!” Plus he’s added five inches of height. And we wonder where our food goes? Now it has been confirmed. 

What are you doing this week to enjoy a little family time?

I’m linking up today with three favorite Wordless Wednesday bloggers…

  1. so sweet! enjoy your couple of weeks!

  2. 5 inches! HOLY CATS! My boys are already eating out of house& home and they are 4&2. I might have to take out a second mortgage just to feed them when they are teens.
    Beautiful pictures as always! Glad you got to be a SAHM these past two weeks. Remember the grass is always greener on the other side. You are a great mom!!

  3. Very cute pic. The bonding time when at home is just awesome. 🙂
