I get weird looks from people when I tell them that I never pictured myself in a classroom filled with students, in a dorm, partying and drinking, or having a career. I never pictured myself having a 9-5 job.
I always pictured myself getting married to a good guy, having children together, and being a SAHM. I have always been old fashioned.
Right now I am living that dream, I have a wonderful loving husband who does anything and everything for his family. A Gorgeous son who makes my life such a joy, and being a SAHM.
Often I get questions like "when Mikey goes to school are you going to work?" and I honestly don't know if that is what I want, I see myself staying home taking care of the house, my son, and hubby for the rest of my life. Its something I enjoy doing.
We are financially challenged, most definately, and we live with my in-laws, have our own space here, and pay rent, do groceries, clean and all that jazz.
We aren't rich in money, but we are so rich in love and happiness.
It really bugs me though, when people look at me like I am some maid(people who don't know me well enough) like I am just sitting at home, eating chips doing nothing. Like because I don't make money, I am not worthy.
I guess these people don't matter, but it does bother me.
So my question is, do you enjoy being a SAHM? Was this your dream when being young? Or has this become a dream when you first became a parent?
Do you feel success full being at home taking care of your child/ren???
My answers will be:
Yes I ENJOY being a SAHM. It has ALWAYS been my dream. And YES I do feel successfull because I am raising this gorgeous human being, I am happy with my life, happy with myself, my husband & my son. THAT to me is being successfull.
Being successfull does not mean, how much money I make, and how many designer purses I got.
It means being happy with who you are, having a loving family, knowing what love is.
