Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

My evil confession...UPDATE*****

I wish we had enough money, that I never had to do laundry again or just hire someone to do it. Today is bedding day(every Monday), and I have about 10 loads in front of me to do. I do towels tomorrow, and then reg laundry the next day. Does anyone else feel like all they do is cook clean do laundry, then rinse and repeat everyday?

Sometimes being a SAHM gets to me, I can't wait to go back to work when my 2yo gets in school. I love my kids and my husband and our home, but I am ready to get some time away during the week!

 

Thank you to all of you, this has been such a nice post and so refreshing to see. I think we all agree to an extent to being overwhelmed, and we all have motherhood in common. With being a mother comes the responsibility of taking on so much, our children and our home and our husbands. Some of us work outside the home, and some of us stay at home. I think there are pros and cons to both, work at home moms get the break while at work but they still have to come home and work some more. SAHM's are doing it all day long, and it can be so overwhelming.

The past 16 years have taught me alot, but more then anything it  has taught me that what I do for my family is amazing and most will never know how much we as mommas do. I am going to say it to you now though, wtg and you are so awesome for everything you do for your families. The big things that they see, and the little ones they will never know about.

We are Moms and we are awesome, we hold the future of the world in our hands and our hearts. All that matters at the end of the day is that we love our families, and no matter if we are at home or at work we kick butt!

Yep they are 16 11 8 7 4 and almost 2!

Oh wow, you have put in a lot of years! That's awesome. I would say you are ready for a change of pace. Your kids must be spaced out?

Yup it's a never ending cycle. But, I accept it and do it to the best of my abilities. I don't stress if a load goes undone for a day and whatnot. My work years a far ahead of me, so I make the most of being a stay at home mom and the time I have with my girls. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Yep the first ten years was not bad at all, but now I am just getting tired and I am ready for a change. It is awesome that you embrace it, because it really is such a precious time in their lives. I would not trade the last 16 years either, I have a bond with my kids that I would never want to take away!

I completely feel ya. I have 6 kids along with animals and a dh that I take care of. I feel like from 7 am to 10 pm I'm doing nothing but laundry and cleaning or cooking. Then when I ask for some help around the house I get looked at like all I do is sit on my ass. Even though I'm never sitting down doing nothing.

You poor thing, I guess I am really lucky that my kiddos help out alot and my DH is so awesome with picking up the slack. I think I might lose it if I ask for help and I got those looks, Lord help them lol! GL momma and keep on kicking butt!

Oh goodness! You have done them a great service, way to go. It's understandable and not at all evil to be ready to head back to the working world. What about a from home job?

I do not think I could do that yet, I am doing online schooling right now and the field I am in (IT) would not really work at home at first. I am sure later on I could work from home, especially if we open our own business. I am just taking it one day at a time, and we will figure it out as we go.

That sounds so much like my day.  I have a 6 1/2 year old and have been a SAHM almost 7 years.  Today, I have like a ton of laundry to do and then I'm getting stuff ready to get back into college online.  It's pretty congested on Mondays because my daughter goes to school until 2:30 and then after school she has Daisies from 3 - 4 and then I pick her up and she comes home, from 5:30 - 6 she has dancing followed by baton from 6 - 6:30.  I also have to cook something for my lunch and our dinner and do all the dishes.  It's not congested like this every day, but doing what you do every day is pretty typical.

I totally agree, it is the day in and day out that just becomes monotonous. We do  not get days off, I mean who gets to take a break from being a parent? Even when you go out, you will always be a mom and the worry and caring never goes away. When we go out I am thinking of all the crap I could be doing, geez I need a long vacation!

I call it magic. Seriously, if you skip one day, it will take three to get back on track.

Quoting LucyMom08:

I hate it! And if you skip just one day, the mess more than doubles...how does that happen?

Oh really, good for you momma! How are you liking it? I've been thinking about IT recently.

So far it is not so bad, of course I am only on my associates. It is more geared toward general ed, I am sure the Bach program is going to be much harder!
