To me, being a stay at home mom really doesn't describe my role. Yes, I stay home, taking care of our children, but it is so much more than that. One of my main purposes for staying home is creating a loving, caring, relaxing environment within the walls of our house. On a good week, my goal is to have all the housework complete, billing done, meals prepared. That way weekends and even evenings can be spent as a family.... playing, relaxing, resting, watching football, going on adventures.
I also try to complete most errands while my husband is at work/kids at school. Even Lilly's gymnastics class is a morning during the week. Now as the kids get bigger, that will change, we will have sports/activities evenings and weekends (that is inevitable and already starting), but doing what I can to make the time we are together less stressful with the chaos of maintaining a home, well then, I have done my job.
This obviously is not the case all the time, but every Monday morning as I plan out my week, that is the goal.
