“So what do you do?” Is a question that’s hard for me to answer. I’m a Mom, but I can’t help but feel like that is an inadequate answer.
Being a full time stay at home Mom is absolutely amazing. By far the most rewarding job I’ve ever had. I get to spend everyday with my little, watch her grow, and see every little change that happens from day to day.
Don’t get me wrong, I am so lucky to be able to stay at home with her. And do not want this blog to come across as complaining; but sometimes I can’t help but just feel useless.
Everywhere I look on social media whether it be Facebook or Instagram, I see so many hardworking Moms out there going to a day job, working nights, working from home, or running their own business.
I can’t help but feel like I should be doing something more than just being a Mom.
Yes, I know it sounds ridiculous.
I know I’m doing my job as a full time Mamma and doing the best I can for Ainsley. But I would love to contribute to our family financially and have the feeling like I’m doing something more productive than just staying at home all day.
Bringing in my own income and doing something productive would give me a feeling of purpose.
Since Ainsley is still breastfed and a little too young for daycare I would love to find something to do at home. Now I don’t want to be that annoying Facebook Mom pushing useless products to people which is why I haven’t hopped on the lipsense or scentsy train. But I wouldn’t mind finding a product that I sincerely love to sell.
Eventually I’ll be going back to school and finishing my degree so I can work full time but in the meantime I would really like to find something to do.
There’s nothing wrong with being a stay at home Mom, and there’s nothing wrong with being a working Mom. Both are amazing in their own ways!
Its hard to not have my own source of income, I hate feeling dependant on people. I’ve always been the independent type and hardworking so by not having that aspect of life I feel a little lost. Learning to adjust to being a stay at home Mom has been hard!
I’m doing my best to accept the fact I’m a Mom and what I’m doing is enough.
That being said I hope to find my feet sometime soon. Whether that be my own at home venture, going back to school, or working part time.
Whatever it may be, in the mean time I will do my best to be in the moment and enjoy the days I have with my Little.
