Life of Luxury??

Taking a shower whenever you want, for as long as you want, is a luxury.
Having a job that allows you to work from home is a luxury.
Not having to change/smell poopy diapers is a luxury.
Eating dinner at a decent time because you're not feeding or bathing your babe is a luxury.
Not having to plan all grocery trips/errands around feeding and nap schedules is a luxury.
Being able to wear your hair down without it constantly being pulled is a luxury.

Taking a hot shower once a day, even if it's a 3 minute shower because Bowen needs attention, is a blessing.
Having a job that allows you to work from home so you can be "Mom" and "Employer" at the same time (is HARD!) but a blessing.
Breathing in the delicious fresh baby scent is a blessing.
Having food on the table for dinner at 4:30 or 9:00 (depending on Kory's shift) is a blessing.
The fact that Bowen eats and naps on a consistent schedule is a blessing.
Snuggles from my babe are a blessing.

Life is far from luxurious these days...
 But we are so blessed!

Oh my gosh I feel your lack of luxury! It is a very similar story at our house right now. But its hard to complain when you are so blessed. This post is a very good way to describe motherhood :)

Having your grandchild and children live close by is a luxury. Having your children and grandson Skype, blog and visit often is a blessing! Thank you so much for allowing us to be part of your lives, even so far away! We love and miss you! See you soon...
