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!

i know some people are very particular about this sort of thing, but have you thought abut making bedding day a monthly thing instead of a weekly thing? thats what we do. thru out the month we rotate the sheets around, flip them over to inside out, and then wash them at the end of the month.

It gets to me too sometimes.  My dh has it so easy. He goes to work, comes home and does whatever he wants when he is not at work.  He doesn't have to think about meals, clean clothes, cleaning, if the kids have been fed, diapered, bathed, if they have had a nap before he leaves the house.  He gets to come and go as he pleases.  He tells me I get to get out too, yea if running through kroger as fast as you can to hurry up and grab things you need before the kids get grumpy is considered getting out... I totally feel you!!

Well no he wasn't this way before. But his mom raised him right and he had it in him. We don't have a dishwasher. We have one large sink. So I grocery shop, Cook and wash dishes and wash dishes and wash dishes. So one day he said its only fair that he take on the laundry as his job since dishes and cooking became mine. It's been like this two out of five years so it took patience.

It is all I do. LOL! But it is what it is. I would rather be a SAHM then a working mom though. Get out some during the week, break it up a little. Go on playdates, the library or movies.

I feel like that every once in a while.. but mostly I'm just starting to get really lonely at home alone all day... I'm only 12 weeks preggo with our first, so I am a sahm without being a mom yet :( 

But all in all, I actually enjoy staying at home. I don't mind laundry or dishes... and hubby helps me cook most nights unless we order in or eat out.
