Being a Stay At Home Mom


My “job” is to be at home with our two beautiful daughters & I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I love being there to watch them grow into smart little girls. Don’t get me wrong there are days that they make me want to pull my hair out, lol, but that’s all part of being home with them.

One thing I don’t understand is how anyone can think that I have all the time in the world to do anything I want or anything for them. Let’s get real here people, I don’t sit at home all day waiting for the phone to ring. I also don’t sit & eat bon bons all day either.

My daughters are very active & we do some type of activity all day. The only “quiet time” during the day is when our youngest takes a nap in the afternoon, but our oldest & I still play outside or color or do puzzles, play games.

So please don’t think when a mom or a dad says that they stay home with their kid/s that they don’t do anything & that it’s the easiest job in the world b/c it’s not.

Oh & by the way when you’re complaining that you don’t have enough vacation time or need a raise in pay, remember that mom’s & dad’s who stay home don’t get paid or get vacation days. They are “working” 24/7 365 days a year.
