I often hear the question thrown around… what do stay at home moms do all day? Just yesterday, I saw a mom post on facebook that she was about to join the “SAHM club” and wanted ideas on what to do to fill up her time. You know what I said? DO ANYTHING YOU WANT!
I used to get all touchy about this topic. I always hate the snotty “oh”s I get when I mention I don’t work and I hate trying to defend how my day is spent and how it couldn’t possibly all get done if I had a full time job. No one likes to live their life in constant defense of their lifestyle, so I have decided I’m not going to be touchy about it anymore.
I don’t work. Some moms work. Who fricken cares? You do you and I am going to do exactly what I feel is best for me and my family. Yeah, most days I don’t get dressed, take a shower, or even brush my hair. And you know what else? Some days I leave the dirty dishes in the sink and take a nap instead. What!? Yep, I take a nap instead of cleaning, often. Go ahead and judge me, I don’t care anymore.
What I do care about though is spending the maximum time available with my children and being a stay at home mom lets me do that. And thankfully, I married a one in a million guy that fully, completely, 100%, supports my desire to be a stay at home mom, naps and all. I don’t know how I got so lucky.
So, do you want to know what Monroe and I did this morning? Just hit play and be ready to hear my beautiful singing voice and see my unwashed face.
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
