I liked the idea of the "domestic goddess" images, a perfectly pressed and aproned woman, very June Cleaver-ish and very much like some women I know. They bake their own bread, keep a sparkling clean house, sew clothes for their children, are involved in many activities in church and community. While I would love to be better at a lot of things, I most certainly am no June Cleaver or Betty Crocker. I have been known to cook a meal poured out of a box or bag, my house is not always clean and I don't do windows or a number of other things. I'd rather throw my husband's white shirts back into the dryer than pull out the iron.
I am a pretty good mom and wife, I think, and I do love my family, and that's what matters most. I love my three girls and love to spend time with them, love to hear their laughter, love to watch them play nicely together, to do silly things and to sing sweet songs. I love it when Sarah takes Aimee's hand and says, "here, Aimee, I'll hold your hand so you won't fall down." There are certainly some sweet moments. And, I have the best man in the world as my husband. It is because of him and his hard work that I can stay home with my girls.
I wouldn't change a thing.
So, while the stresses of being a mom, wife, homemaker can be rough at times, I love it.
Thanks for stopping by!!
