So as you know I’m at home with my awesome baby, Beckham! I’ve always wanted to be a mom full time. Well, when I was pregnant I thought in the back of my mind that maybe working will be easier than taking care of my baby at home. NO FREAKING WAY! I LOVE this job so much better than my part time job – teaching. I call it part time because you get to leave it and come home. Being a stay at home mom (SAHM) is actually full time work. You don’t get a break from your “job.” Yes, technically if you work outside of the home and then come home to take care of your baby you are working full time too…and major props to you also…that is tough. And some people love doing both. Staying at home is definitely not as easy as I thought it would be, but I love it so much and can officially say it is easier than teaching (in my opinion). Every time I told someone I wanted to stay home, they warned me that it would probably be harder than teaching. And of course I love the comments about teaching such as “such a great schedule…you get off at 3 and you have summers.” Well yes you have summers, but you work the same amount of time as someone that does not teach. Teachers work 12 months, but do it in 10 months of time! I can’t tell you the amount of time I put into my kids and classroom that was not during the infamous 7:30-3:30! More like 7:00-6:00…on a good day! 🙂 I have major respect for teachers and will always be super nice and supportive of my own kids’ teachers from now on! It’s one tough job!
