For the last month or so I have been calling my current stage in life my 2nd act. I am 37, I will be 38 in August. So, it is probably pretty safe to say that I am in the 2nd part of a 3 part life.
The last day at my 9-5 was last Wednesday. The kids still had school both Thursday and Friday though and I had other things going on. Today though, the 5 year old is home and he will be home with me all day.
I won’t be passing the duties off to someone else in an hour or so, so that I can be on my way to work. I don’t have to drop him off at daycare to be cared for by someone else while I work. Nope, not today, not this summer.
He is already awake, I have already received cuddles and he is drinking some juice. Relaxing a bit before our plans to go to the zoo (his choice). We have a zoo membership and it is only about 15 minutes away from our house, so this is one of the few things we can do daily that doesn’t cost us anything. We pack our own snacks and drinks, we get our steps in and we enjoy each others company.
I still got up with my husband’s alarm. I mean, it is the least I can do to get the coffee ready and pack up his lunch. After all he is the one busting his butt in his 9-5 to make it so that I can be home with our family. I have already done my yoga for the day, made a list of things from the grocery store and now I am enjoying my cup of coffee.
I will not waste these next couple of months. I will truly enjoy the time, play games and pretend and do all the silly things that my kids want me to do with them.
Life is Good! Here’s to the 2nd Act ❤ ❤
