A couple of weeks ago I shared that I’m blogging now and that one day a week I’ll be pursuing avenues of work while Dave does childcare. I really do still consider myself to be a Stay at Home Mum. Six days out of seven is okay isn’t it!?
My Family is my life, I can’t believe I’d say it like that. It’s amazing how having a child bonds you with another person, it’s rather magical. Dave, my partner is my rock and is the main reason I get to be a Stay at Home Mummy.
When I left school, I opted to go to University. A wonderful life experience and a degree in Multimedia Design to boot. I’ve never really had a career and jumped about from admin job to admin job. Never really settling on anything. So being a Mum has changed my life so and now am happy to say not only is it my job it is my life.
The decision to stay at home took months and it was quite a shock when I got my P45! Now several months on the answer was correct and I’m happy to say I am in love with it. Who couldn’t resist staying at home with this:
As I’ve said, I am a Stay At Home Mum. I always knew I would be a good Mum, people tell me that I am. Sometimes I don’t feel like I am though. It’s hard work, it’s not 9 – 5 anymore, it’s 24 hours a day, every day of the week, for life! It’s relentless but so rewarding when you see the first gummy smiles and get your first hug, the giggles and the fun. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
If you have never seen this video before, this pretty much sums it up being a Mum:
Life is certainly different from when I worked in an office. We get up about 7am, after a milk feed, we take it easy and leisurely get up, dressed and have breakfast. We’re normally done around 9am. In the mornings we tend to get out to a baby group, or go for a walk or to the shops. Back for lunch and then the Robot naps. This is when I down tools and blog. After nap time we, play, we go for walks, tidy, make tea. It varies each day. After tea time we get the Robot through the bath and into bed.
The best thing about staying at home is getting to watch the Robot play, grow and learn. I feel very lucky to have him in my life. The loneliness hits a bit sometimes but since the Robot has become a bit more interactive this has lessened.
It really is the best thing that I have ever done. Becoming a Mum. I don’t miss any of my old jobs, I am embracing life with my new one, a Mummy.
Are you a stay at home Mum? How do you find it?
