Confessions Of A Stay At Home Mom

6 Sep

Wearing jeans instead of sweats is reason enough to say it was a productive day

Going to the mailbox is often the excitement for the day

I may or may not stalk the window at 3pm daily watching for the mailman

“Potty,” “Nite nite” and “ouchie” become regular words in your vocabulary

And occasionally are said to other adults on accident

You develop a crush on Steve from Blues Clues

And the creeps from The Wiggles start having a charm to them too

Taking a shower feels like a challenge to see what you can get washed in 3.5 minutes

Brushing your hair is a luxury

Using the restroom is an even bigger luxury

You smell of crayons and baby snot when your husband comes home

“Broken record” doesn’t even come close to explaining the repetition of your day

You have been wearing a princess crown for 4 hours and forget to take it off when you go get the mail

Glamorous, huh?
