Misconceptions of a SAHM

Being a stay at home mom is the pinnacle of jobs in my life. I great up with a SAHM and there wasn't ever a doubt in my mind that I wanted to stay home with my kiddos when the time came. It is the most fulfilling and life giving job I've had but also the most physically and emotionally draining job. I am currently sitting upstairs in the game room trying to fend off Ford shoving his plastic play food hotdog bun in my face as he attempts to smash the keys of my laptop. Naptime is in 10 minutes and I've gotta get this blog post up before he goes down because the second he's asleep I will hit the ground running on the chores I missed because we were away this weekend. I wouldn't change my life for anything (and I truly mean that) so today on MOMquery I am sharing some misconceptions of stay at home mamas. 

Hope on over to read my two cents.

I love the one about "you must be rich". I get that one all the time, but if they only knew! We have one car that we share, we do not have cable, we have not taken a vacation since our little one was born, we have not even had a date night unless we trade with other families because we can not afford a babysitter, I am constantly cutting coupons, we NEVER go out to eat, we did not get our daughter a birthday present because the party was present enough, we do not give each other presents just handmade things (mine was a cake this year), we wear our old clothes and have not had an update for years unless someone gives us some hand me downs and the list could go on....
BUT I would NOT trade any of that for being able to stay at home with my little girl! It is the best gift and pay check I could EVER receive!

I love being involved in every little thing and experiencing everything with her. Hahahha! If i could count how many time people tell me Im rich because I stay home...I would actually be rich lol! and the don't you get bored one drives me crazy!

LOVE this article!!! My career was very similar to yours. I LOVE being a SAHM. Many people ask me "so, when do you go back to work?" and I had a hard time responding "I quit and plan on staying home". I kind of felt guilty for staying home and spending my husband's money. , however I'm so used to bringing home some money, that sometimes I feel bad about not making any. Currently I'm working on a little project to make a little on the side, I do that while my daughter is sleeping and it helps me to feel a little more independent.
