I love being a mom. I love my 2 boys and can't imagine my life without them. But they exhaust me. Hubby and I were talking last night, and I told him that. I am more tired at home with them than I ever was when I was working full time. It's amazing.
Lots of ppl think that stay at home moms have all the time in the world for whatever they please. I had no idea before I became one how little time I would have for cleaning, laundry etc. I only started to really get back into baking when my older son was about 2 and liked to help me (and then it took twice as long and made twice the mess).
My house is never as tidy as I would like it to be - and when I actually get it that way, I swear I am going to keep it like that, and within 2 days it's a mess again.
But it's fun - and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
