I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for eleven years.
There have been times since having children where I was employed outside the home. During vicarage I worked full time. Call it wishful thinking, but even when I had four part-time jobs during our second year at the Seminary, I still considered myself a stay-at-home mom.
For home is where my heart is.
You’d think by now we’d have some sort of routine down.
But we really don’t.
Free-spirit though I be, I do believe routines are helpful, just not always practical.
Oh hi, Baby! Yes, I see your silly face! A picture? Okay, just a minute, Momma will take a picture of you…
I think the mistake we make as mothers is not so much our inability to stick to and keep a routine.
Making a routine is not the secret.
The secret, I believe, is in the routine making us.
