“Hanging out with tiny humans all day, every day, how exhausting!” “Wow, you’re so brave!” “Don’t you go stir crazy?” These are the kinds of things I hear when I tell people I stay home with my kids, as well as watch other people’s kids during the week.
Hi, I’m Meghan. Wife, stay at home mom/stepmom of two, and coffee enthusiast. And you know what I have to say to those people? This life IS exhausting sometimes. Motherhood is SO exhausting and challenging and even lonely sometimes. But it’s also SO worth it.
Some people bring their kids to daycare (I wouldn’t have a job if they didn’t) – THAT’S OKAY. I’m not judging. Whatever works for you is great! This is what works for me, and this is why I’m thankful that I am able to be home with my babies.
When I was a kid, there was never a definitive “job” I could think of that I wanted to do when I grew up – But I always knew I wanted to be a wife and a mom. So here I am, living my dream! I get to watch my kids grow up with a front row seat every day. I get to be here when my daughter takes her first steps or when my stepson loses a tooth. I get to see the world through their eyes every single day. I don’t have to pay someone else to spend time with my children while I’m at work – and that is pretty incredible for me. I’m also a bit of a helicopter mom so the thought of not knowing every single thing my baby did that day gives me anxiety – I’m working on that. In the meantime, I get to kiss their boo-boos and make their lunches and clean up their messes and soak up all of the snuggles. Every. Single. Day.
However, hanging out with kids all day can REALLY leave a girl craving some adult interaction. And that’s what brought me here. Though adult interaction on the internet isn’t a replacement for real life adult conversations, it’s definitely a start. So here we are, my creative outlet. It’s gonna get raw and real at times, but that’s me. Follow along to get updates on new posts!
