I’m only 16 days into this whole “stay at home mom” thing and I’ll be honest, I’m wrecked! To be candidly honest, I thought stay at home moms had it made. They get to be home all day, taking care of the kiddos, having all day to tidy up the house, make dinner for your working husband, probably take a nap, do some crafts, social media it up and then do it all over again.
Easy peasy riiiight?
Wrong! So wrong!
The schedule of this new stay at home mom is ever changing and I’m expecting it to stay that way. Yea, I have plans to “sleep train” Carter and I’m all about having him on a schedule but lets be real that ain’t happening anytime soon. And when it does, it will change, I know it.
And after being spit up on, peed on, pooped on and cried on the last thing I even want to do is clean or cook. I’m begging for a spa retreat aka a 30 min shower!
Please don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining about my new job as Mama, I’m so obsessed with my little guy and so blessed that I get to spend these intimate hours/days with him, guide him, care for him and watch him grown. I am mostly apologizing for my immature thinking of stay at home moms.
So to all the stay at home moms out there, you freakin rock! I have so much respect for you! And I am so sorry for thinking you had the easiest job in America.
I had even told Andrew I was afraid of “just being a mom” and he was quick to change my thinking on that. He said, it’s the most important job there is. And I so agree with him.
I’ve seen the meme’s out there that say stuff like “Yay, it’s Friday – but wait I’m a mom” or how about “A mom is a cook, chauffeur, therapist, etc etc.” It all makes sense now. I get it! I feel you ladies!
God bless all you stay at home mamas and then the mamas who continue to work, you too are dang near superwoman!
Any advice to help me get on a schedule over here? Leave me a comment below. I appreciate it!
p.s. Here’s two memes that I found on Pinterest. Hilarious!
