SAHM

You think you want to be a SAHM, think hard. This life is crazy and I love every minute of it but man my days are 10 times harder then when I went to work. Let's look at today for example.....

Wake up, shower, dry hair and get dressed in 30 mins. Make their beds and pick out their clothes. Get dog out, feed kids, open Mary's school folder, realize you didn't do her little person, quickly cut and create her on a paper doll, get them dressed, run around look for camera, take preschool pictures, make coffee, forget to drink coffee, run around find backpacks, load kids in car, sit in traffic, drop her off, run out of room so she doesn't cry, get home realize you didn't do anything you needed to do for her first day of school, hurry and pack her stuff so you can take it back at pick up, set up Henry for quiet time, get on conference call for an hour, feed him quietly while on call, get him ready for school while still on call, hang up, take him to the bus stop, come home, load five dishes, get back in car to pick up Mary, take her to McDonald's because, hey, it's her first day, come home for 10 mins and head out to a meeting to talk about being a classroom mom, drop off things you have created for people, get home to pick up Henry off bus, run to grocery store, feed snacks, prep for party tomorrow, clean house, remember you husband isn't coming home until 8pm and you need to feed your kids.

This is just not today but everyday - sitting down happens at 9pm. It's insane and tiring and fun and complete insanity but it's our life, my life and I'm sure its not just me but every mom out there, from stay at home mom's to working mom's, and I guarantee none of us would give it up for a minute.
