Stay At Home Mom

Monday I stayed home from work to get ready for the Vera Bradley sale and I have realized that Stay At Home Mom (SAHM) is the job for me.

First, I got to sleep in 45 extra-long minutes which doesn't sound like much but there is a big difference between 5:45 and 6:30!

Then I woke up Xander so he could shower. While he was showering, I sat in my bed and blogged, in peace and quiet.

At 7, I had to wake Eve and make breakfast.

The next 45 minutes were filled with making sure everyone is staying on task.

I got Eve to school by 8 a.m. I was able to do this like the other SAHM's (in my school district), with no make up, hair in a ponytail, and in my jammie yoga pants (girl has to have some pride).

Then back home to shower and get ready for my day. 

After I got ready I went to the library and then did my grocery shopping, which on a Monday at 10 was so dead it was like I owned the place.

All of this was done before NOON!! 

Imagine all of the things I could accomplish if I could stay home. Let us compare what stay at home moms do to what I would do.

This is how I think other SAHM's handle their day:
I am pretty sure they do laundry, have a spotless houses, workout, blog, count calories, and catch up on correspondence. 

This is what I would do if I were a SAHM:
 I would just sit at home in my jammies every day, watch GMA, The Today Show, and Kathie Lee and Hoda (because Kathie Lee and Hoda are some funny biatches). I would probably eat breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses  lunch, snack, and a 3pm refuel. I think I would take at least 2 naps and I am pretty sure the butt dent on my couch would get deeper and deeper! I don't think makeup and hairdryer would be on my list of possessions. 

Maybe the Hubs will win the lottery or the hit the job jackpot and I can accomplish all of the above.

What would your day be like if you could be a SAHM?

  1. Haha! I have to laugh about what you think SAHM's do. Truth is, being one is pretty tough and sometimes slightly annoying. I feel like people DO expect me to have a spotless house, perfect kids and do nothing but cook and clean. To bad I hate cooking!.. lol and although some of my days are spent cleaning and doing tedious tasks, most of the time my days fly by before I even know it! Between school and practices I'm busy basically all the time!
