Day 5...

...of the 31-Day Blog Challenge - A photo of yourself two years ago.

This was at my brother-in-law's birthday party almost exactly two years ago (Happy Birthday this Saturday, Pete!). Micah wasn't even a year old yet, and Gage wasn't even a blip on the horizon. Weird. Time flies. It was a hard time for me. Ben's company had gone under in January of that year, and I had to work full-time while he was being Mr. Mom and hunting for jobs. One of the hardest times in our marriage, bar none. I'm glad that's behind us. I've told Ben that, if he ever loses his job again, I'd rather live in a cardboard box than work and be away from my kids. The end.

Love the picture, and I can't blame you. I think I would feel the exact same way!

Cute picture:) I totally agree about staying home with the kids! #1 I don't think Mark could handle it AT ALL!! #2 I think I'm better at it anyway. At least I don't sit around and play video games all day. I know that's what he would do! I would totally make him get a job at Walmart or something! lol

Whoa, that's with our old couches! Well, our old couches, that used to be Mom and Dad's old couches...crazy. Two years ago Ivy and Micah were not quite one. So weird.

You and Sadie look so cute! I am really digging your daily photo post ideas...I might have to copy you later on.

And can I just say how wonderful it is to know that there are still some moms out there who love being home with their kids?!? You rock!

I don't know how you did it all, working full time, being mommy. You look super cute in this pic, though!
