Secret Pleasures

I've been fighting the greener grass syndrome lately. I actually do enjoy being a stay-at-home mom. As a reminder, did you know that as a stay-at-home mom, you can...

- Eat corn on the cob for lunch. When's the last time you did that on a weekday?
- Watch World Cup soccer games while "on the clock"
- Get a farmer's tan without actually doing the work of a farmer
- Bake pretty much anything you want anytime you want and call it a "teaching experience"

Not a bad life, neh? And that's not even thinking about stuff that's actually significant. :-)

Also, now I really want some corn on the cob. It's so wonderfully summer!

I think it must be going around! As the school year gets closer and closer I can't help but think about how much "better" things would be if I could stay home!
