“What have you been doing all day?” For those of us who are stay at home moms, this is a question we often hear. The kids are still alive, right?? That’s what I have been doing all day. But, there is a misconception that most of us watch soap operas, take long naps and maybe bake a batch of cookies. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The roles of a mother are endless. My day consists of cooking, cleaning and wiping ass. Then, repeat. I am usually wearing some type of bodily fluid and if I am lucky enough to catch a shower, I consider it a good day. On top of the already demanding routine, we take on tasks such as accountant, chauffeur, psychologist, nurse, repairman, seamstress and teacher; just to name a few. We love what we do and wouldn’t trade it for the world. But, don’t think our only concern is whether we have become a Pinterest mother of the year yet. We are mostly just trying to survive. Now, go thank your mom (or dad)!
