As a stay a home mom, we all must agree that this a 24/7 job. It’s beautiful, hands on and realistically speaking hard! Every part of me is working. I have to think ahead, I have to get things done, I have to talk nonstop and most likely keep repeating myself over and over without getting my point across. Don’t get me wrong, I love my “job” and yes I am trying to complain a bit because again it’s hard.
You are probably thinking, why complain when it’s a choice thing to be a stay at home mom? Well, I wouldn’t be wrong if I said that perhaps you complain about that job you absolutely love every now and then? Yes, there are those days when you have just got to let it out. At least your boss is a grown up that can challenge you in a grown up way…..Not my position. I have to be able to reason with a 5 year old and find just the right words for them to understand my point.
Talk about multitasking; we can do it and guess what, it is automatic. We will do a million things all at once and get them accomplished with no bonus check…Lol.
We have become product gurus to every single item our children go through as we raise them. We learn to read in details what these products are made of just to keep our little ones safe. Studying products for the knowledge…..How sweet.
Guess what, I know every word to almost all of Dr. Seuss books…you know why? Because I have read them to my munchkins over and over and over to a point that they have them memorized into silly songs that are funny to them. To top it all off, now that my little ones are able to read, guess what their favorites are?….yep…..our beloved Dr. Seuss. The bigger picture here is the fact that I am thankful because my munchkins can read and can get lost in Dr. Seuss world. On the other hand whoever, I have to listen to the exact same lines over and over again. I believe only a ninja mama is built with this level of patience.
Automated to jump out bed at any slight movement. I honestly don’t remember the last time I knocked myself out in complete sleep in which I couldn’t feel my kids’ little fingers by my bed. I feel everything. No, in fact I sense anything around me even with my eyes closed.
My point is, Mamas We are it,!!! We are Ninjas and together we raise nations.
The ones I know by heart
