I am happily living my dream right now. Ever since I can remember I have wanted to one day have a baby and to be able to stay home with my baby. So, being a stay at home mom to Hailey is a dream come true.
Of course when I was dreaming of being a stay at home mom I never realized how much work it would be. That picture over there on the left? No- my closet didn’t throw up. And no, I didn’t just return from a trip that required lots of clothes. That’s just the clean laundry I have been avoiding. I don’t know why I hate folding laundry so much. But, I always put it off until it piles to the ceiling.
For some reason before I was actually a stay at home mom I had these visions of my baby sitting quietly and playing while I worked on my scrapbooking and cross stitching. Of course, reality set in very soon after I brought my little bundle home from the hospital and I’ve learned that being a stay at home mom is the hardest job I’ve ever had.
I have a shirt that perfectly describes my life. I would model it for you because I love it so much, but that will have to wait until I reach my goal weight. But, this picture over here on the right- that is what is on my shirt that I got from LTDChix. The laundry shirt is perfect for me. But there are lots of other choices and I’m sure you can find one that would describe your life. LTDChix has choices for working moms, minivan driving moms, moms who cook, moms who clean, and so much more. I personally love my shirt- it’s the perfect choice for me as it seems my piles of laundry are never done.
But while being a mom is the hardest job I’ve ever had, it’s also the most rewarding job I’ve ever had. The smiles and giggles and hugs and kisses that I get from Hailey make it all well worth it. So, even though my life isn’t exactly as I dreamed it would be, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
