This summer I was asked by a dear old friend what I like to do during my free time. “Free time?” I asked, “I don’t even know what that is anymore.” Ha, ha!
I thought a lot about that since then. As a stay-at-home mom I guess I don’t go to an actual 8-5 job every day. But boy, do I work. It’s almost as my photo shoots and time editing is my spare time. But, my friend disagreed. “That’s not free time, that’s actual work”, she said with a smile. So true! But it doesn’t feel like work. I love running around during my shoots, I totally lose track of time when I edit and I just love it. I’d also say that when the kids and I get out of the house to just go to the park or playground, that’s free time too.
I don’t know, when I was working I was always longing for the weekends. But with kids the weekends are, let’s just say, slightly less relaxing compared to before. But I love it! This was always my dream – surrounded at all times by my own amazing family. And the joy of taking my daughter shopping, which used to be one of my favorite spare time activities, is just priceless.
Here are some pictures from our 36th week. It’s so funny that my son is so into Thomas the Tank Engine that he has managed to convince himself that the words “Thomas” and “pajamas” are the same. It does make it easier to get him ready for bed though. Lol! 🙂
