Stay at Home Mommy
A Full Time Job
Here it is now twelve noon,
my chance to sit is soon.
I stay at home you know,
although, the dirt in my house still shows.
So why should things be a mess,
of course, I know you jest!
The children can play through the day,
toys at times, get put away.
The dishes are done,
what’s that you say, its time to run!
So off to the store we go,
our dollies are in tow.
This trip should not take long.
up and down the aisle we shop,
with a list in hand, we know where to stop.
I’d better check the dryer,
without fail, the clothes pile grows higher!
I hear the call from the kitchen my kids ask, “whats ya fixin”?
They like to help prepare, our evening supper fare.
Plentiful is our food,
there is always something good,
be it cupcakes, home made cookies,
roast in the pan, a pot full of stew,
hot bread from the oven, store bought candy to chew,
My children are well nourished
and will continue to flourish.
Some say my children do without, I started to think could it be?
Let me run through a list and see if you agree…
clothes on their back fit them well,
there are play clothes, Sunday clothes,
school clothes and night clothes,
all clean and ready to wear.
Toys are both old and new,
plenty to go around even to share!
Sometimes I think of an outside job and hire a nanny,
to clean and take care of my family.
I’d miss time to bond and play,
I know they won’t be home forever to stay.
As a mom who chose to stay at home,
At times it feels, I stand alone.
The opinions of peers,
can sometime bring tears.
They don’t understand my submission to God,
how important that for Him, I do a good job.
Twenty two years later.
Today, twenty two years since the birth of my fisrt of two wonderful children, I can say it was worth every minute.
To be there for your children is a blessing for you and your family. Being able to witness, logging your memory the milestones of their life, from first steps to learning to read is priceless!
The peace of knowing your children are in your loving care is every mothers want.
