My husband always says I’m more than just a stay at home mom & he appreciates me and that I’m a good wife & mother to our children. So it got me thinking. Because honestly in past times when someone would ask me, “what do you do for a living?” I’d kinda timidly say, “Oh I’m just a stay at home mom or homemaker” unknown that I was demeaning my role. After some thinking tonight, I’ve come to the conclusion that I took my own role for granted. I’m much more than just a stay at home mom or homemaker. If I was paid for ALL I do, I think I’d be much wealthier than I actually am presently.
Being a mom & a wife has given me experience to wear many hats & fulfill different titles.
Live in Nanny
Activist and Advocate
Singer (I can’t sing)
Mental Health Expert
Door Dash driver
And an expert in Pig Sty’s
I have become all these under the role of being a wife and mom. And I believe other parents might agree for their role. I value my roles and my lived experiences because they’ve only given me knowledge, wisdom and much understanding. All these and so many more unlisted, are in relation to different stages of life and learning “on the job” training, rolling with the punches, and continuing to put on and take off many different “hats” as I live on.
Thanks for being here once again. And for following my articles.Continue reading “I am / You Are / We are more than just a stay at home mom.”
