A Day in the Life of a SAHM: Hello all!
Hi Moms, Dads and all of those TTC and soon-to-be parents! I am a 25-year-old married SAHM (stay at home mom) of two, ages 2 1/2 and 7 months. I am also a chef, laundromat, cleaning service, and financial planner. (You should see my paycheck – I get paid way too much!)
This is my first entry in a series I’m starting about the life and times of a SAHM. Now, as you can imagine, my days aren’t full of heart pounding excitement, nor are they similar to a high-powered CEO who makes company decisions all day, but they sure are interesting and BUSY. So, I decided to write about them. I will share the frustrations, joys, chaos, and the ins and outs of everyday life that come with being a mom. I’m sure you will find things similar to your own life here, after all, we are all parents.
And now, to share a little bit about myself.
I decided to have children young because I knew I wanted to stay home with them before working out of the home. My husband and I were lucky enough to get pregnant with a son right after we were married. Two years later we had our daughter and now here we are – together 9 years, married 3 1/2 with two kids and two dogs. There’s lots of chaos at times, the house is by no means spotless, and laundry piles up seemingly endlessly, but that’s life!
In the past two and a half years I have found that I thoroughly enjoy staying home with my kids. I love seeing them grow, learn, and discover new things each day. I also realize how fortunate we are for me to be able to stay home – I know that many parents don’t even have the option.
So, here I am four years after graduating college, home with my two little ones. Not many (actually none) of my friends from college went the same route I did in choosing to become a young mom and a SAHM too, but I love it. I have found that I’m learning and growing as a person just as much as my kids are.
So, hello again to all of you here on the babiesonline.com blog! Be sure to come back and read more of A Day in the Life of a SAHM! This life gets more interesting with each passing day!
