Please do not mistake this post as a rant vs. mothers who have office jobs, or as a rant vs. husbands who earn a living. It's not. This is just my realization on Mommyhood.
This is my current Facebook status:
-Do I work?A couple of months ago, I also read something about If being a Mommy was a paid job we'd earn one of the, if not the, highest salaries.
Yes. I work 24 hours a day.
Because I'm a MOM. I am a cook, a cleaner, a parent, a teacher, a referee, a nanny, a nurse, a handyman, a maid, a security officer, a photographer, a counselor, a comforter, etc. I don't get holidays, sick pay or any days off. I work through the DAY and NIGHT. I am on call at ALL hours. Tell me your job is harder than mine. Post if you're proud being a MOM.
I definitely agree to them both. Being a full-time Mommy is not an easy task. When I was younger and had no family of my own, I took for granted everything my mother did. I took for granted her cooking, her cleaning, how she does the laundry, her budgeting skills, everything.
Now that I have a family of my own, I realize it's such a difficult job, and you always do them simultaneously! Now I understand the saying that their "Children are the center of the universe" or that "Family comes first".
I'm not complaining though. I love seeing my little Missy so happy. I love playing with her, reading to/with her, watching cartoons with her. I also love it when her Daddy comes home and says that he loves the smell of what I've cooked and is all excited for dinner. I love it when he tells me about his day and asks me what I think about this and that. I love my life.
I do know though that I still have a lot to learn, especially when it comes to cleaning. Around here we always have helpers for cleaning but now that I do it all alone, I find it so hard to clean the house and keep everything organized. I know I'll learn. I know it'll take time, but I will.
This post is dedicated to all mothers, or husbands who stay at home and live the mother role. From the bottom of my heart, I am so proud of you and know that you are appreciated.
