My 4th Thursday 13!



Thirteen Things about being a Stay At Home MOM

1. You can stay in your Pj's ALL day if you want!
2. You dont have to brush your hair, if you dont feel like it
3. You sometimes can sleep in!
4. But then again sometimes, your up early, and up for the day!
5. You get to experience the Joy of raising your kids full time!
6. Your kids drive you crazy every single day...at least once or twice!
7. You can not have a shower, if you dont feel like it!
8. Your kids are guaranteed to make you laugh, smile and maybe even cry all in one day!
9. Staying home all the time is much more difficult than working.
10. Your house will not always be clean because you are home all the time.
11.Being at home all the time will occasionally get boring, frustrating and stressful - sometimes all at the same time.
12. You learn all the words to Dora, Barney, BLue's Clues, the Backyardigans...which is a good thing...and a bad thing!
13. A STAY AT HOME MOM NEEDS HER OWN DOWNTIME TOO!!!!

Just wondering if you could all send a dear friend of mine some good vibes, Im not going to mention her name, but she is like my second mother..and she just found out that she has a cancerous lump in her breast. She appears so far to be handling it well, but this woman is the helper in EVERYONE'S lives...so I know this is gonna be hard for her in so many ways..most of all she is NOT used to asking for, or needing some help. She is the strongest person I know, and she has been my idol for years, fit as a fiddle, very active in her childrens lives (and mine too for that matter, they joke about me being the other daughter!)She is my complete role model for a mother, and for a mature woman. I am totally devastated...I cant imagine how she must feel..my heart breaks for her..any spare thoughts and prayers, would be greatly appreicated...Thank you!


Not much time for anything else at the moment...packing to head into town for another newborn shoot...baby Evan this time! cant wait...Got lots going on for next week, u/s appt, new hair do! LMAO..and another dr appointment...hoping to get an engagement shoot in this weekend...one of my other good friends...but looks like it might just be us girls...here's a hint, 2 blondes, one horse and a field of sunflowers...how COOL will that be???DANG IT SIERRA...call me! LMAO!

I guess I'm different. We've talked about when we start our family (fingers crossed soon) if I want to stay at home. I don't. I'm told by friends that will change once I have a baby.

Great list. I do like the thought of Pj's all day though:)

Yes, I'm all for SAHM's though I know some can't cause of money etc. If ever I had kids I'd stay at home too.. it's just the right thing to do IMHO.

I was able to take 18 months off work with our youngest was born and I completely agree - staying home is a lot harder than working, but I loved it! I do get to work from home 2 days a week, so like you, I also can sing all the songs listed in # 12!

Hope all turns out well for your second mom, she is in my thoughts and prayers.

Great, great list! You go girl! I wholeheartedly agree--we need downtime. The house definitely may not be clean even though I stay home. Thank goodness I can do my job in my PJs with no shower. Especially now being pregnant I don't always have the energy to get dressed and groomed. It is the best job ever! Love it! Thanks for visiting my TT, I'll be back to your site!
