I felt compelled to make this little video because I’ve been reading interesting articles lately debating the validity of mothers who choose to work from home – or who are just at home in general taking on the noble task of raising their children.

I hope that this video clears up the myth that being a stay-at-home mom is easy. It’s – in my opinion – a job in and of itself… and although fun, it’s no child’s play… well I guess it is a little. Well it’s no walk in the park… Well we do that sometimes too… Well it’s demanding! And I commend any mother who has put their career on hold to do it.

    Funny! Being a stay at home mom is great and hard at the same time but I love being home with them.

    I salute you, fellow stay-at-home mama!  I only have one, but now that he's turned two it feels like I have a dozen! It was like a switch went off and he turned into a temper tantrum throwing machine. I honestly believe the twos are what drive people to drink during the day.  Speaking of days, HAPPY SITS DAY!

      Mine are just 1 1/2, and they've already discovered how to have a good breakdown… And you're right… I guess that's what red wine is for. lol.
      Thank you so much for stopping through!

    You walked the line perfectly – of showing the complexities of staying at home, but with humor and with the prevailing message of that it's "where you want to be."  Happy SITS day!

    Your blog is fun and well done. Great work. And this video. So cute. It is almost impossible to explain why staying at home is hard and great all at the same time.
