I swear sometimes I think that's what I should be called. My husband works incredibly hard for our family and for me to be able to stay home with our daughter. He works long hours, at least 45-50 a week, plus logs extra hours even when he's home with us. He never complains, even when he's stressed and having a bad day.
I never really thought I would be a stay at home mom. I mean, I kind of always had that dream, but didn't think it would ever be a reality, so I never took the time to focus on exactly what being a stay at home mom entails.
I'm wondering if any of you might have some input, because I could really use some advice!
What do you think makes a good SAHM?
I feel like I have to do it all! All the childcare, including all over nights and feedings. Then there's cooking, keeping a very clean house, laundry, ironing, shopping, managing schedules and appointments, paying bills.
Then there's the wifely "duties" where I am totally slacking. I want to work out and look good for my husband and make sure his needs are met. He deserves that, I think.
Here's the thing, I really think its just an organization/time management issue on my part. I really think it can be done.
At least better than it is being done.
So let's consider this the great SAHM experiment.
