A while back Evan had mentioned me looking into Mother's Day out 1 or 2 days a week for Dixie so that I could get a break or tutor and make some money. The thought repulsed me. There was no way I was dropping off my little girl when I have the ability to be a stay at home mom. There are more chances for her to get sick..yadda..yadda. I told him NO WAY!

The past few days my child has been ridiculously clingy to me at home. She follows me around and tugs at my pant legs...whinning if I am not holding her, reading her a book or giving her my FULL attention. Maybe it's because I am feeling a little under the weather today, but it really started wear on me.
When Evan got home I told him that I thought maybe she needed more opportunities to be around other people. I have playdates with people and we have a cousin day at least once a week. I feel like I get her out as much as the next stay at home momma. I mean she is only 1. Then I realized she is cutting like 4 teeth and has been kinda cranky due to it (maybe this was the cause)
I decided I would look into Mother's Day Out just to see how much it was for 1 day. I googled a local church and before I could even find the cost..I felt sick. I can't do it!!! Maybe I am too attached. It may be something I consider later when she is older, but for now I am going to cherish my time with my little girl before baby #2 arrives and she is forced to deal with sharing me. Don't get me wrong..I don't spoil my child I think it is good for children to develop independence, play on their own, and be exposed to others. We are just going through a little "time" right now. So I will just pray for patience and endurance during this phase and be thankful that God has provided me a way to raise my daughter at home. Being home with her is the HUGEST blessing and I wouldn't trade it for the world... I love it! But some days I just want to pee without my daughter trying to crawl on my lap:)
