A choice 7 years ago has lead us to NM

Early in my husbands career we made a choice to begin moving so that he could "climb the ladder" with his company. That was 7 years ago and here we are three cities and three houses later in Rio Rancho, NM. I never thought I'd live anywhere that wasn't Texas nor did I ever imagine trying to raise a family away from our family. We have been so fortunate to have found a great church family, and great friends. As I entered into mommy hood I was able to meet other moms through a breast feeding support group and later a MOPS group. My friendships have changed and these new mom friendships keep me going.

The transition from working to staying at home was very easy for me. I think that if I had still been in San Antonio where I had a job that took up 50+ hours a week I'm not sure the transition would have been easy. The last job I had before giving birth was a contract position that I had slowly gone from 30-20 hours a week in preparation of the birth of our first son. Sometimes I do miss working at an office but then my AJ will smile just the right way to where I'm so thankful I get experience every moment with him.

I absolutely cherish every moment that I have with my AJ, and I am slowly learning how to run a household. It is intimidating as I'm always afraid of making a mistake. Thankfully I have a very understanding husband and baby boy that adores me.

Motherhood is Messy

My husband and I have been married for 12 years. I have wanted to be a mommy for so long and we chose to wait until we were financially able to afford for me to stay home. After getting out of debt we decided it was time to start our family. I am so excited to be a new mom but I have learned that mommy hood is one of the toughest jobs ever. I am so excited to share part of my crazy and happy moments that come along with being a first time mom.
