Another week of summer fun!
Today I was able to articulate to a friend what I love most about being a stay-at-home-mom. When I was working a job, there was always a sense of being burdened or shackled by it, even if I loved it, because I wanted more time to enjoy life's simple pleasures. But when I was unemployed, there was too much time, not enough structure. Grass is always greener, right?
As a SAHM, I'm able to swim in the lake, lay out in the sun, meet friends for coffee, and walk around the mall when most people are stuck in their cubicles. And yet I don't feel lazy or indulgent, because I'm doing my job, and my day has structure and routine. Grass is pretty green over here at the House of Brancaleone!
