What I Wore Today: The Only Thing Lacking Is A Ruffled Apron
This is more of a costume outfit of the day post. It seems appropriate for yesterday's events. Read on... :)
If you follow me on twitter, you probably already know that I got offered a job as a marketing manager for a new fashion retail establishment. Their line doesn't appeal to me much but still, it's in fashion and a pretty good position too. I was supposed to have a final screening yesterday afternoon. When I mentioned it to Dennis, he wasn't enthusiastic about it at all. Then, he later admitted that he prefers to have me at home with my daughter and himself.
Some of you might probably be put-off by such old-fashioned thinking. I know that personal feminine empowerment is the in thing nowadays. For me, however, I thought that his suggestion to just stay at home was sincerely sweet. I am not a fantastic homemaker after all. Just average, but the fact that he likes me being around further confirms in my heart that we are partners in life who are lucky enough to be each other's best friend as well.
Still, I couldn't help but ponder on the thought of being a fast-paced, ultra-chic career woman. Then I remembered how much it saddens me that my daughter, now four going on five, is growing up too fast. I am by her side almost every single minute but still time seems to just fly by and I miss her being a little baby in my arms. All sweet and pink, soft and helpless. With these thoughts, I realized that maybe I am no longer cut out for that lifestyle. I just wouldn't be able to bear being away from her for such long hours every single day. I would miss all her little innocent and funny anecdotes and I don't think I can ever live with that.
So this Lent, I am very grateful for all the blessings I have in my life. I am truly grateful that God has blessed me enough to stay home and be able to witness every single milestone and every single fumble my daughter goes through. To have a man beside me through it all who totally understands and supports me is the cherry on top of my wonderful sundae. <3
Hence, the 1950's style outfit! LOL :)
PS. I made "Look of the Day" on the new Bakers website. You can check me out HERE and if you like, vote for me so I can be "Look of the Week". :)
Thank You! MWAH!
