Being a stay at home mom is the most underappreciated job in the world. And sometimes no matter how hard you try, it’s almost impossible to meet the expectations that everyone has placed on mothers who stay at home with their children. So, To The Stay At Home Mom Who Is Trying Her Best… You are doing a fantastic job.
I know that everyone expects you to have the house clean, dishes done, laundry washed and put away, kids taken care of and entertained, meals cooked. And while you’re at it, why don’t you make sure the kids are taking part in learning activities at all times!
I will laugh at that right along with you.
The truth is, at times it is impossible to get something as simple as all of the dishes done in one day. I mean, you can’t stand at the sink all day if your kid wants to explore the house or play in their room.
I know you are trying, and you spend all day busy never resting and always moving onto the next task. But at the end of the day, it’s never good enough. Or never as good as people expect from you since you have all day at home to do it.
And you can’t really complain, can you? Because it’s such an amazing opportunity to be able to raise your kids and be there to watch them grow.
But I understand how hard and tiring it can be. And it’s okay to occasionally just take a breather and relax. Let the housework go and take a mental health day.
Don’t let the expectations get you feeling like you are failing. They won’t understand until they have to do what you do all day. You are doing a great job.
