Learning to think differently.

I have always thought that once I quit my job and became a stay at home mom that I would have lots of time to become the domestic goddess I know is in there somewhere. I just realized that I am practically not working at all and I still haven't shifted my brain to homemaker. I don't know if it's my being tired all the time that I come up with excuses not to do things or if I am just resisting because it's not that fun. Probably the latter.

I have been trying to remember that now I have to be a new kind of person that I have never been before. When have I ever had nothing I HAVE to do but take care of my home and family. I am excited and I am determined to get good at it. Hopefully, even before Patton gets here.

It's funny that it doesn't come as naturally as I thought it would but I guess all good things come to those who work hard for them.

Anyway, I don't know why this has been on my mind so much (nesting maybe?) but thought I would throw it out there!


  1. I think your doing a great job! Your house is always nice when I'm there. Plus when you have a little person it becomes higher priority because if you don't clean things up, they get into it all.

  2. I love this post, because I've always felt the exact same way! And it's only recently that I've realized that having a baby is not going to be "automatic amazing cook and decorator" launch time. I'm working on that stuff now of course, but I feel like I never have the time! I guess it will always be schedules and making time and planning crafts to do, but just with a different mode than working OUT of the home all the time :)
