Being a Stay at home Mom is the toughest job I've had yet. Most working Moms envy SAHM's because we get to be with our kids all day. What people don't realize is we never get a 15 min break, lunch hour, weekend off, vacation or even a sick day...
I've been sick for over a week now and I still get up every morning and do all the things I do everyday for my family. I also babysit a 22 mos old little boy along with my own 2 year old. These kids keep me pretty busy.
I'm not complaining because I love my family and after being a working mom my entire life I cherish the time I now have with my kids. My 12 year old isn't happy about it I'm sure because I know exactly what his homework is for the day even before he walks in the door.
I just wish for one day I could stay right here tucked in my bed and just sleep this cold off. I saw a great challenge on Jeni Boisvert's blog that her and Dena Coe did last week about saying NO. I want to do this challenge because that's how I was feeling last week. I wanted to say No to babysitting, ironing my husband's shirts and packing his lunch, monitoring my son's homework on School Notes, cooking dinner, doing laundry....NO NO NO I can't take care of all your needs, I need to take care of me today.
Hopefully I'll feel up to finshing my layout and then a few of my favorite card challenges today. Thanks for stopping by!
