Being a Stay-at-Home Mom Is Hard!
Sarah’s three kids keep her very busy.
Have you ever wondered how you could do so much in one day, but still feel like you didn’t accomplish anything? That’s a little what being a stay-at-home mom feels like.
Take the day my two sons (ages five and two) got the stomach virus and my baby girl refused to nap, for example. I felt like I needed to clone myself just to breastfeed my daughter, care for my sons, and keep the germs contained. I had never felt so busy or so overwhelmed—but I never even left the house.
It’s such a rewarding job, but days like that can be lonely—especially during the short, dark, cold winter days. Sometimes I don’t get to leave the house for an entire week due to inclement weather and an abundance of germs.
In these times, my phone is my lifeline. It connects me to other mama friends going through the same thing. It connects me to my husband who can guide me through. And in those low moments, every little bit of socialization gives me hope and puts everything into perspective—this phase will quickly pass by, as our children grow up so fast! I know I’ll miss it one day.
