About 3 months ago I became a stay at home mom again. I've been one before. Heck, I've been everything before- a working mom, a single mom, a single working mom, a stay at home mom, a work from home mom, a mom who took her kids to work with her; I'm pretty sure I've been in almost every angle of the stay at home mom vs. working mom debate, and even created a new angle or two from which to view it.
Bottom line: I love being a stay at home mom. I do "work" during the day while the kids are at school- various things that make money and save us money, but essentially I'm a stay at home mom. I love being with my kids, watching them grow and develop and being an integral part of their lives.
There are some things, though, that I did not sign on for as a stay at home mom (unfortunately, puke, piss and crap are things we do sign on for when becoming a stay at home mom- the kids' stuff, that is). No stay at home mom signs on for these things, but many of them just end up happening anyway. Well, not anymore. I'm here to lay it all out on the line, let people know that even though we are stay at home moms, there are things that were not included in this hidden contract that we signed... Don't go trying to add them now!
