Do you remember hearing how great being a stay at home mom is supposed to be? I think I somehow missed the course on housewives that stay home and watch soap operas and eat bon bons all day. I am pretty sure the few times I have tried watching a daytime soap opera it’s the same people as when I was younger and would go visit my grandma! How do they never age?! Now let’s talk about bon bons, what the heck are they? They sound amazing, but maybe a little to fancy for everyday life.
In reality I have to say being a stay at home mom has been the biggest blessing and the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I love having the flexibility to change my schedule and focus on what is right in front of me at the time. Although that is a double edged sword in some ways. Sometimes when the rest of your family knows that you will drop everything and come to their rescue it can be so frustrating! I know that I am not alone on this. I know so many moms whose lives revolve around helping their family be successful. What an awesome and humbling role to play in our families.
With all the modern conveniences we have I shouldn’t complain. I do have favorite shows that I can sneak in while I’m folding laundry or washing dishes. Netflix and my DVR are two of my biggest sanity savers, and the variety of todays bon bons (chocolate) should exceed anyone’s expectations! Life is good! Now I’m off to tackle the mountains of laundry my family of six produces!
