The Forever Job

August 21, 2011

"I would like to quit my job!" These are the words I stated to my hubby when he got home the other day. He looked at me smiled and said "too bad, this job is forever!" UGGG!! I wanted to shout.

You see I am a stay at home Mommy to a 19 month  beautiful boy/monster, and also to our 2 crazy cats and our Beagle Snoopy who is on too many medications to name. I absolutely cherish my time with my son and our animals and  I am very lucky that my husband is able to support us. But  let me tell you some days I am so envious of my husband and my mommy friends that get to head off to work.  The clothes, the conversations, even the commute I yearn for on occasion but of course the MONEY is what I miss most!!!

I miss having my own money and not having to think twice when I am purchasing something I want and not necessarily need. My hubby is awesome and has never ever complained about my spending but there is definitely something to be said about earning your own money.

  The thing I realized is I do have a full time job that I work very hard at and enjoy immensely
(most of the time). 
So the lesson I finally learned this week is
My job is just as important and valued as everyone else's and being a Stay at home Mommy is a real money earning job!

Thanks for reading!


  1. The hubby says: "You are the best mom in the world, and no money could ever repay you for the amazing job you do".

  2. I stay at home with my two boys. I have days where by the time my husband comes home I'm ready to quit also :) New follower from bloggy moms, have a great week!

  3. Totally can relate! Also a stay at home mom, and some days I hand off my son to his dad ten hide in my room for 30 mins. I love being a sahm but it's hard sometimes. So I have to remind myself that I'll get through it. New follower, found you on bloggymoms!

  4. I'm a SAHM as well. Most of the time is great, but it can be overwhelming sometimes!

  5. It is definitely a real job! Some days I long for a cubicle just for the break from the chaos, but as a SAHM, I know how important my job is. Even though I cannot clock out at five, I know that, in the end, I will always look back on the years spent at this "job" and know that my efforts weren't wasted. It is the hardest and most rewarding career anyone can ever have!

  6. I work full time and wish I could stay home. I know there are pros and cons to both but the grass always seems greener. My goal right now is to figure out a way to work (bringing in money) and being there for the kids. oh, my husband too! And you job is super important and there is no price tag on your worth in that position :)
