I have heard people say, "OH you're a stay at home mom, that must be nice" and "Wow, you don't work" or "Stay at home moms watch TV all day" and the list goes on and on.
It's obvious to me that those people have no clue what being a stay at home mom is really like. And I find it amazing that many people who say those idiotic things don't even have kids!
Along with doing laundry, putting laundry away, checking the mail, putting dishes away and all the other things you have to do on a daily basis to keep your house in order. Not to mention playing with the kids, teaching them life lessons and kissing their owies. Plus, we have 2 large dogs!
Today, my day started at 5:30 in the morning when I get up to make hubby's coffee and lunch. Then I had to wake up our son at 7:00 and get him ready for basketball camp.
I let our daughter sleep in until 8:00, woke her up and we were out the door at 8:15. Then back home to feed eat breakfast with my and get her ready for the day. Unload the dishwasher and take meat out for dinner.
After we ate breakfast and unloaded the dishwasher, it was out to the garden to do some weeding before it got too hot outside. Then we fed and watered the cows, pigs and dogs.
Back to pick my son up at 11:15, then it was time to eat lunch and then head to the doctor, a 45 minute drive there and then back home again. Had to stop by the grocery store on the way home too.
Take a load of laundry out of the washer and dryer, then start another load. Start making dinner, feed the animals again and water the garden. Play kickball with the kids, a quick game that lasts 30 minutes.
Time to get ready for bed, have dessert and relax for a few minutes before finishing up for the day. To start all over again in the morning!
Being a MOM means that you are on call 24/7!!! Being a "SAHM" is a tough job but well worth every minute! Not only is it tough but it's the most rewarding!!!! I wouldn't change it for anything!
