Stay at Home Mom. What do these words mean to you?
Every time I say “I am a stay at home mom” I sometimes feel scared & worried for what people are thinking. They could be thinking “oh she stays home & does nothing all day. I wish I could do that”, “oh her husband makes a lot of money” or “poor her for taking care of her kids all day, I couldn’t do it” Well I’m not the only one who feels like this.
The other day, in my blogging 101 online class, the assignment was to find 4 blogs and comment on them so I did. The next assignment to pick one blog I commented on & go in depth on my comment. So I picked this post & comment from “SAHM”: The Voldmort of Job Titles?. I really enjoyed reading this piece she wrote. She expresses her feelings on being a SAHM and I feel the same. Why do we feel scared about that, worried it offends people, moms? It shouldn’t be that way. SAHM’s should be proud, happy, and greatful that we, as moms, can handle ourselves, our kids, & our whole life without having an income. That is what my husband is for. 🙂
So please what does a Stay at Home Mom mean to you? Are you a parent? A student? Working not working? I want to hear from all walks of life. To me it means to spend time with my babies, to take care of them, nurture them, love them, teach them, & to watch them grow while I keep my house clean & myself and my husband happy. 🙂
