Whenever anyone tells me that being a stay-at-home mom means that you don't really get to use your brain is, well, in a word - NUTS! The incredible organization it takes to run a home smoothly, to budget carefully, to cook meals that are enjoyable, to keep the house humming and happy, teaching your children to be kind and respectful, and then there's being JEWISH, which is a whole brain workout in itself. Being a homeschooling mama really magnifies the brain workout too. I am learning so much every day, and there are so many engaging, worthwhile things to learn.
And my new favorite? The word-a-day e-mailed to me by dictionary.com. WOW! More words I never heard of. Yay.
