Great to be a housewife…


I am a housewife, I am not JUST a stay at home mom. I take great pride in being a housewife. In this day in age it seems that staying home is almost not acceptable. Things sure have changed in 50 years and now most moms go back to work and I found it is expected of moms.

(my husband and our kids)

I didn’t quiet know what I was going to do when I had kids. I went back to work after I had my daughter and discovered it is not for me. I do get told that I should be providing income to the family and be working. I work very very hard and I found that when I did work after you factor in daycare, extra food, convince food, taxes and such I wasnt making any money! I can now stay home and provide a great life for my children. I do childcare in my home as well to help out my husband and my friends as times do get tough and I do feel  the need to try and help.

(Me and my daughter)

there is so much to being a house wife and mother. My kids ALWAYS come first! I have had  people tell me that I focus too much on my home and not enough on my children…. I would like to clear this up! I keep a tidy home yes… BUT I chose my times to clean, my kids help (yes takes 10times longer but its good for them help and feel useful), I do it when they are sleeping or my husband has the kids for an hour outside. If my kids need me or I feel ill then it waits for me. I grew up in a very messy home with convince food and I was so embarrassed to have friends over. I feel that I need to provide a clean environment for my kids and it shows them I care. I also home cook most of our food, local or organic not processed or instant.

(My awesome kids!!!)

I do get asked at least once a month when I am going back to work… the answer is…. I do work! lol don’t know the answer right now, my kids need me at home and that’s where I am 🙂 all I ever wanted to be is a mom! and I intended to do my best!

To all the house wifes out there GOOD JOB! it can be tough! but its the most rewarding job!

(Me and my son a year ago!! he was so little)

My beautiful family!

    Just a commet to the above, I am a full time working mom, There is not starting at 8 and ending at 4. I wish I could be a stay at home mom sometimes, but doesnt work for me. I think all moms stay at home or working are awsome, and we are all full time.
