I have to say being a stay-at-home mom has been an experience so far. It has really helped with understanding who I am and what I put first over everything else in my life. Of course my family is number one, hands down. I love seeing my son laugh and smile when he sees me or when we play tickle monster. I love when I hear my husband come home from a long day at work in which I give him a kiss because I truly did miss him. They are the greatest joys in my life and I would do anything for them.
My son, being 5 months old now, has quite the character and is the best baby. No tears unless he is hungry and I don’t get to him on time. He always smiles when he sees me or his daddy. Sleeping through the night is not a problem and he is a great study partner. Erik can roll over now and is talking up a storm. He makes sure that my day is full of excitement.
My hubby always have a way of making me feel better when I feel low and makes me look at the bright side of things. I am always happy when he is home and love when he enjoys my cooking. Though he does frustrate me sometimes, at the end of the day we always say I love you.
Being a stay-at-home mom made me realize how much I love cooking and baking. I love trying new things, such as baking bread or making home-made Mexican food (my husband loves Mexican food). Another thing it made me realize that I like a clean house. I grew up with my mom cleaning a lot and making sure when people were coming over there was no dust to be found. So when I finally got my own house, I ended up being the same way. I cannot stand a dirty house and I especially hate when people come over and my house is a mess. I clean a lot which makes my husband think I am OCD. I just like my house a certain way and if there something out of place it makes me cry a little bit inside.
I also realize that it is hard work to be a stay-at-home mom. Most of my day is spent with cleaning, taking care of my animals, my son and my husband, cooking, and also doing my online classes. The only real me time I get during the day is when I take a shower, but in all honesty I don’t mind it. There are some days were I would like a break and time to go shop or just to get out of the house, but most of the time I just deal with it. I know that this isn’t forever however I do love doing it. I am still going to school do get my degree in archaeology and I don’t plan on letting to go to waste. I still want to be an archaeologist and I am so blessed to have a husband who supports me and lets me works and helps out with my dream. Even though it might take me a longer time to get to my dream, it is still my goal. However at this moment of time I love my job as a stay-at-home mom. I would never want to go back in time to change anything because I love what I am doing right now.
