Shortly after Tyson and I announced my pregnancy, we went to a social function. While there, I started chatting with another mom.
This girl informed me that it was no surprise I was pregnant again, because as a stay at home mom, I obviously have nothing better to do than keep making babies. In fact, she was surprised we had waited so long to have another. Her tone of voice was very negative, and she felt the need to make a few other comments with undercurrents of disapproval. Initially, I was hurt by how snotty she was to me. But I decided it wasn't worth my time to fret over her derogatory attitude over our decisions and just got over it.
Well, the other day I got to thinking about what she had said. And I decided that aside from her negative attitude, she was absolutely right.
I have nothing better to do than have this baby. I have nothing better to do than be a mom!
There is nothing better than watching Jace's face light up when he figures out how to do something new. There is nothing better than when he gives me big kisses for no reason. I have nothing better to do than make him grill cheese sandwiches for lunch and clean up his puke when he's sick at night.
When this baby comes, I'll have nothing better to do that spend my days and nights nursing. I'll have nothing better to do than change diapers, clean up spit up and try to figure out how to juggle a baby and a toddler.
My strengths and talents are best utilized in my home where they can benefit my husband and children most. I know that being a stay at home mom is not for everyone, but it's what is right for me.

There is nothing better than being a momma, and I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be with my son all day every day!
