Being a Stay at Home Mum – The things no one tells you

posted in: Just Mum | 0

Hi all,

My daughter is now in her 5th year at school and for her first 4 years she attended after school in creche. The opportunity came in August for me to be a stay at home mum and to be honest for the first time in 4 years it didn’t scare me.

After 4 weeks of school runs here are some things that no one ever told me would happen over the past 4 weeks.

  • The school runs are stressful, the traffic is awful!
  • You will wonder how you ever done all you do now when you also worked 40 hours a week
  • Your house is never clean
  • The washing basket is always full
  • Some days are lonely
  • Did I say that you will constantly wonder how you done all you do now when you worked
  • You will have amazing plans on Monday but on Thursday that TO DO list gets longer!
  • I’ve become a better mum
  • I am trying each day to reach out for adult conversation
  • I am much more relaxed
  • I have more patience with my daughter
  • I am more mindful about my well being

Are you at home with your children? Are you enjoying it?

Rita.
