The question has been asked… “How is life as a stay at home mom (SAHM)”? There are so many benefits of being a SAHM, but there are also many downfalls.
For those that didn’t know, I left the corporate world back in November 2017 and have been a SAHM ever since then. I didn’t start blogging until January 2018, so life ever since I left work was very unclear. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. I didn’t know if I wanted to go back to school. I didn’t know if being a SAHM was going to be right for me. I didn’t know anything to be honest with you. I do know that ever since I left my job of over 10 years, a HUGE weight fell off my shoulders. Health symptoms that I’ve had in the past, are no longer here, and I’m not just saying that to say that. I truly mean that my physical health symptoms that I’ve experienced for years, just vanished after about 2 months since leaving my job.
So, how is life so far. It’s honestly been amazing. I started this blog to keep me busy. Something fun that I could do, while I figure life out. There were so many questions spiraling in this little head of mine. So, I decided to create this special place on the internet and express topics. Everything that I love, everything from parenting, and everything in between.
With my kids already being in school, I get more “me” time. It’s time where I get to write, talk to those of you that follow on my social medias, and time to get things done around the house or errands that takes me forever to do when the kids are home or with me.
And, since I’ve missed out on being a SAHM before the kids started school or were born, I now get the pleasure of volunteering at their school and being at every single event! Something that I love doing!
So, you’re probably wondering whats this “downfall” i’m talking about. Some people think being a SAHM means I’m lounging all day long in my PJs, sipping wine, and just living the good life. Well, that’s totally opposite….
It may seem that I wouldn’t be as busy as much if my kids were home all day everyday with me, but truthfully, my days are slammed. Having a blog is a full time job, if not more, and I’m sure EVERY blogger can agree with me on this! However, I do have a schedule that I like to try and follow, to help keep me sane. It helps me get things done around the house, get work done, make dinner, get homework done, then spend the rest of my night with my kids and husband. I don’t think SAHM get enough credit for all the work they do… we do! We definitely have our challenges, but it’s also rewarding being able to spend the time with our kids while they are young.
HERE IS A GLIMPSE OF HOW MY DAYS LOOK…
Who knows where life will take me down the road. I don’t know if I’ll be a SAHM forever, but for now I’m enjoying this path, enjoying more time with my husband and kids, and enjoying my little space on the internet called A SIMPLE PIECE OF ME.
