I so agree with blog that I saw...

Actually it is someone that I know. I use to work with her husband, and the wife is a stay-at-home Mom, just like I am now...Some of the points that she shared about being a stay-at-home Mom, and comments she and others have heard?
~So, when the kids get older are you going to go to get a real job?
~I wish my husband were rich, so I could stay at home all day.
~So, what is it you do all day?
~I wish that I could waste my college education.
There were others, and of course this is not exactly what was said, only what I could remember, but I so hear something similar, and along those lines all the time...my favorite being, So, what is it that you do all day?
Let's see...
Feed the family 3-5 times, clean up spills, do the laundry, clean the house 2 or 3 times, run errands, wrangle little ones, get them cleaned up, not let them stare at the TV for longer than 15 minutes at a time, not let them paint the dog, or each other, read stories, try and eat something myself, possible get a shower in for myself and brush my own teeth, and many many un-named things...that is what being a Mom is...A FULL TIME, NON-Paying, but the MOST REWARDING Experience I have EVER had!!!
Just saying!
LOVE is full circle! You love them enough until they love you back, then you just keep it up!

  1. Cracks me up too. My very good friend here and myself explain motherhood as the 24/7, 365 days a year, don't see a damn dime, keeping alive little versions of ourselves. We are responsible for others lives, yet it's the most poopooed, downplayed job there is. And that's not even bringing up the household responsibilities. Plus, mothers are the ones who make a house a home. We supply the overall homey atmosphere. But you're right. It is a darn exciting experience. And I, for one, only care that my little family appreciates what I do, cuz I do it all for them. Kisses! Soni
