Becoming a Homemaker

It’s funny. Growing up, I never wanted to stay at home with a child. I wanted to have a career. In fact, I even broke up with a boyfriend during college because that is what he wanted me to do – become a homemaker. But somehow, Caleb changed all that.

When I found out that I was pregnant with Caleb, the idea of staying home with him sparked within me and it was an idea that I couldn’t shake. I envisioned taking him to the library every week, having picnics in the park, going on little adventures – I wanted nothing more. It took me until his first birthday to make it happen, but I like to think that was the best gift I could have given to him – the gift of my time.

It hasn’t been easy. Any SAHM will tell you that. Especially when I am working some from home. And there have been some stressful moments between Robb and I, but without his support, this wouldn’t have been possible.

One of my intentions for this new year is to be a better homemaker. After all, it’s part of my tagline. But really, I feel that this is where my path goes at the moment. I want to make sure the house is clean, laundry is done, dishes… well… I hate doing dishes so no promises, and that there is something made for supper.
