On being a SAHM

Ever since I went back to work after my maternity leave, I've thought about how much I wish I could be a stay at home mom. How much I wanted to be home with my baby. Watch her grow. Experience everything.

That hasn't changed.

What has changed, is my realization that I may not be cut out to be a SAHM. I love love love being home with Fynn. These past two days have made me realize just how much I miss spending all day with her. That said though, I don't know if I could do it long-term. I'm not creative enough, playful enough, I can't think of things to do to occupy and engage and entire day with her. I resort to several walks and excursions just to break up the day, but I know it's not as stimulating for her as it would be at daycare.

I love it though. I love our tickle sessions. Eating snacks together. Snuggling on the couch after naptime. I love seeing more of her little personality coming out more and seeing her figure out new things. I never realized just how funny she is. How can a kid who's not even a year old make me laugh so much?

  1. I know what you mean, I'm a SAHM and I'm definitely not creative or playful lol. Not like what I see these moms doing on Pinterest!

    I don't know how to answer your last question cause my 4 month old makes me laugh and he's just a bobblehead still :) Children are just so amazing, from day 1!

  2. Being a mom is so much fun whether a stay at home or working. I always thought I would get kind of bored being home all day, but my little one always keeps me entertained! Every age has been so great and it just keeps getting better! Thanks for linking up!
