The life of a Stay at home mom is Beautiful and a Disaster at the same time.
I’ve been a stay-at-home momma for six years and the more I stay home the bigger the disasters get. When I say disasters, I mean the washed clothes don’t get put up after coming out of the dryer, laundry keeps piling up faster than I breathe, wondering what that smell is coming from your kid’s room. There are dishes that don’t seem too important to pick up after your three-year-old just threw her food on the floor cause all she wants is sour cream and onion chips (Why in the world do I even cook?) So, after picking up the food now there are multiple puzzles on the floor in the living room; caused by two boys because you said don’t take them into the room, because you know you will never find the full puzzle again; but now you still can’t find all the pieces, because some got stuffed under the couch. But, through all the chaos, when they run through the house, they trip over their own toys (that weren’t supposed to be there in the first place). They come to you in time of pain, need you just hold them and tell them they will be okay and kiss their invisible boo, boo.
I’m slowly getting back into cleaning every day, so I’m looking into finding cleaning schedules. If you have a favorite one, please drop your suggestions below. I feel like one of those little monsters my kids pretend to be that just came and sucked out all my energy. I guess that is what #Coffee’s for, right!? But as a mom when the house is too quiet, you enjoy it for the first five minutes (I lie more like 20 minutes) but then realize you have kids, and they are probably into something they shouldn’t be. My oldest is a smart little turd, but he has figured out that when I say no, he asks one of his brothers or sisters and if they say yes then he turns back around and asks again, expecting a different answer. (Really kid?) but he also has this cute face, so sometimes It’s a little hard to say no because he has gotten fantastic at the puppy dog face (it should be illegal in the parental world).
In all, what I’m trying to say is that being a mom can be a disaster. However, when you look at your little monsters in the act of destroying your home, you realize how amazing they are. My advice to you is always enjoy the little things even if you are having a bad day, I promise if you take the time to do so your day will get brighter.
