I am sure all stay at home moms can relate to the meme above at some point in there life. With children, your work never ends. As soon as you think your about to get a break here comes the next request from your child or you’ve forgotten you hadn’t got a certain thing done. It’s hard to understand for some who might be thinking “hey why are you so tired? Your home all day right?” Oh it’s not that simple. It’s a rewarding job, but very hard all the same.
I just want to give these moms more credit than they get. Imagine being with your child 24/7. Yes, this is the biggest blessing in my life and I wouldn’t give it up for the world, but stay at home moms are constantly in a child’s world. Playing. Cooking. Cleaning. Wiping. Teaching. Calming. That can get very exhausting. Sometimes you need to think and act like an adult for your own sanity. Also, Kids have energy adults do not. I love this. It’s like getting to relive childhood all over again, but again what makes it tiring is the lack of energy. Lack of Sleep. Lack of Food. There is no scheduled lunch break for these moms. Many days meals are forgotten to be eatin because your to worried about getting the children what they need. On top of all this you are running errands, paying bills, etc. So to keep it short and sweet. Next time you ever think what do you all day about your very blessed friend or loved one who gets to stay at home with their children all day know they do so much more than you can imagine.
And if anyone ever gives you a hard time about it, say your husband, brother, friend, etc plan a girls day out with friends, once you get back trust me the thought will never cross their minds again. 😉
