Before my children were even born, I had made the decision that I wanted to be a stay at home mom. I knew there was a big sacrifice I would be making by quitting my job. Bills would be harder to pay which would mean we would need to make choices to stick with generic brands, eat more meals at home, and try cutting any and all corners we could to make it work. The benefits of staying at home with my babies were far greater of a blessing than money could ever be! Now, it is time for this mama to go from being a stay a home mom back to work, working a public job.
Motherhood is the hardest yet most rewarding job you will ever have. It can also be the most overwhelming job. A new mother can never go wrong if she listens to her instincts and lets go of the worry that can often occupy a new mom’s mind. Once you learn how to relax, you can fully enjoy motherhood.
When you think of the word housewife or stay at home mom, what comes to mind? I think of raising children, keeping a clean house, and cooking. There are a million other things that also come to mind but those are the three that seem to categorize all the other thoughts that pop in my head.
For those who don’t know me, I am one of those who usually has a daily list longer than time would allow within 24 hours. I stay up at all hours of the night to finish my list. If I don’t have something to get done, I make up stuff that I FEEL NEEDS to be done.
