“Staying home requires you to be your own boss, and that can be very empowering as well as overwhelming! What we do each day does matter in the lives of our families.”
I love this great quote the Jaimi wrote on her Mission Statement/About Me page on her blog, The Stay-at-Home-Mom Survival Guide. Her blog focuses on family and activities in which she utilizes her Early Childhood education background. You might want to check out her post, Crash Course in Child Development: Toddlers, which does a great job of highlighting key points of toddler development. And I LOVE her post on her Description of a Perfect Mom.
