For All You Moms

Jul 24, 2011

When My friend Julia posted this article last week, I knew I had to share it. So many days Matt will come home and say how was your day, what did you do? Besides the obvious feeding Sterling, changing diapers, cleaning house, doing laundry, etc I am sometimes like what did we do today? It is not like I sit around and watch tv all day, my day is busy. It is just hard to put into words what we do all day. This article said it perfectly. Also since having a child I am slack about returning phone calls, emails and even sometimes texts, so hopefully this helps explain it. Word to your mom.

  11. I remember reading this great article. It is so true. Unfortunatelly, sometimes it doesn't matter what you show someone they would never understand what you go through as a stay at home/work from home mom.
