When people ask me what I do and I tell them I'm a stay at home mommy, about 9 times out of 10 I get this response: "WOW! Your soooooooo LUCKY!"
I usually smile and say "yeah, I am." (as a distant look gets into my eyes). In my head though these thoughts are running through very quickly at lightening pace: (They all start with the phrase "I'm so lucky that:")
I'm the one who changes ALL the diapers!
I'm the one who cleans up all the messes - and with two kids at home - that's a lot!
I'm the one who has to take them with me wherever I go (even to a bathroom stall).
I'm the one who has no privacy.
I'm the one who has to calm them when they are upset.
I'm the referee when it's needed.
I'm the built in toilet fixer, tv fixer, dvd fixer, anything fixer really.
I have to fight with them to go down for a nap (just to get a moments peace).
I have to fix all the meals.
I get to clean the house, take out the trash, make the beds, sweep, vaccuum, wash the dishes (by hand - no dishwasher here), etc. etc.
But at the same time, in the same instance, a big smile spreads across my face! Because I AM lucky!!
I get all these sweet little hugs and kisses ALL day long!
I get to see them mature and learn new things!
I get to be the hero when I FIX things for them!
I get to play kid games all day and watch cartoons.
I get snuggle time when they are upset, or when I'm trying to get them to go to sleep.
I get to see their infectious smiles ALL day!
I GET to be a stay at home mommy.
Since I am a stay at home mommy, I've had to figure out a way to bring in some income. I've become little miss Susie Homemaker...LOL!
