If someone had even hinted today that their job was more demanding than being a mother I would have laughed myself silly!!
Someone has said that being a stay-at-home mom isn’t challenging enough.
That someone hasn’t tried to change three diapers, clean up half a bottle of baby powder while keeping the baby out of it, and put breakfast on the table, all at the same time.
Someone has said that being a stay-at-home mom isn’t interesting.
That someone hasn’t mopped up 6 gallons of water off her kitchen floor, mixed in with half a box of cereal, and another half a box of dry milk while trying to explain to her child the differences between his responsibilities and his siblings responsibilities.
Someone has said that being a stay-at-home mom means you aren’t very smart.
That someone hasn’t been faced with the many varied learning experiences that children put you through, such as what pull-ups are made out of (run it through the washer . . you’ll find out), whether or not hand lotion is formulated with a cleaning agent (rub it on a wall), how work requires force (self-explanatory I think), etc. (we didn’t do the hand lotion today. that was another day.)
Someone has also said that being a stay-at-home mom wasn’t worth it.
That someone hasn’t cuddled on the couch with their children, or heard their ‘thank you’s’, or watched them learn how to walk, or listened to them telling someone else how they want to be “just like mommy”, and so on.
Praise the Lord for nap time when all of us can pause our day and refocus!! Not to mention clean up!
