I was asked the other day what do you? I stopped for a moment because recently, I became a stay at home mom. Not because I lost my job, but because we chose to have me stay home to raise our children. I said to this individual, I am a mom. They quickly asked what I did before becoming a mom. To be honest with you, I don’t want to talk about what I did or I worked for because it is inconsequential to what I do now.
I have read numerous articles about becoming a stay at home mom, but to me it has become much more than being called Mommy. I am the cook, baker, face washer, declutterer, financial planner….I could go on and on. In order for me to keep a handle of all these new hats I am wearing, I am writing everything down. Not so much as a diary, but to keep myself accountable to my life and tasks.
I can only hope that someone someday will read my writings and find something useful or helpful for their own life. For now, I will begin to think of my first real post about our life. Now I have to run to read old Macdonald to my toddler.
