The Life of a Housewife is NOT for Me!!

Living the life as a housewife is NOT for me!! This is not a post to down the women who are. I actually applaud you all because I don’t see how y’all do it !!! I start my new job in the next 3 days so until then .. I’m stuck at home with the kiddos and as of right now, I can say that my children have officially driven me bat sh*t crazy and gotten on my damn nerves !!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Excuse my french but that is exactly how I feel right now and I kind of feel like blogging about it is just a way for me to vent!! From the all of the fussing, fighting, whining, calling my name a million times, asking a thousand questions, the horse-playing and everything on top of the normal mom duties and house duties … I’m just over it !!
I don’t know how real housewives do it. I don’t know how my sister does it! She’s been a housewife/stay at home mom for at least three years now and she has two children just like I do. I applaud you women though because it’s a lot of work!! It’s almost like having a job in my eyes except you don’t get paid for it. You’re responsible for ALL of the mom duties, entertaining the kids, managing to keep the house nice and clean, preparing all three meals, and still having enough energy to entertain your husband when he gets home. And honestly, I probably didn’t even name everything but all of that right there is E N O U G H !! More than enough!
I am not cut out for this type of life and I’m not ashamed to say it! I’m one of those that has to get up and go to work just about everyday. I have to be doing something productive that doesn’t involve me being trapped in the house with my children all day. For it to happen occasionally is cool but everyday? Hell to the NO! My husband could be making over $100,000 per year and I would still get up and take my butt to work somewhere!
So with that being said, THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME VENT !! Now please excuse me while I go put these sweet, innocent, handsome, cute, cuddly, smart, wild, loving, hyper hyenas down for a nap 😜

  1. Girl!! I couldn’t do it either. And I only have one kid. She’s 16 now but when she was younger I wouldn’t have been able too. I need to work for my sanity. Lol

  2. LOL! You guys are NOT making me look forward to being a stay at home mom. I just started about a month ago, with my newborn. It’s easy right now, thank heaven. But I have days where even with just my little one and an overly demanding dog, I just want to pull my hair out.

  3. I couldn’t do it either! I felt like a horrible mom and I did it for a long time even though I was miserable. Not everyone is meant to be β€œthe” mom. You know, the fresh baked goodies in the oven, got everything together mom.

  4. Another great and very real post Jessica! I am definitely not ever going to be a stay at home mom for a few reasons, my husband and I decided to not have children ( which initially was him, but now we know I can not carry full term because of my illness but two is because I would go crazy at home all day long. I have been forced to stay at home for the past few days due to bad health. I appreciate you sharing this fabulous post!

  5. Girl!! I feel you! And the little boy in blue is smiling naughtily like “This is not over, ma.” Very cute, to be enjoyed while it lasts. Have you read Elizabeth Prentiss’ Stepping Heavenward? Well-written and relatable. πŸ™‚ I recommend.

  7. Oh the irony! LOL! I was literally having the same conversation with a friend this morning. I have one 18 month old extremely active little boy and I have to send him to nursery everyday even though I am home temporarily! If I kept him home I would get nothing done!! So I feel you 100%…cant imagine 2 of them! Kuddos to the full time housewives!

    Ps. Your boys are adorable!

  9. Lol! Thanks for this. I taught high school for a reason, but after realizing more than half of my income would be going to daycare it just didn’t make sense for me to go back to work. Definitely the hardest but best thing I’ve ever done in my life. 😊

  10. Being a stay at home mom is only for some. Myself, not so much either. I stayed at home with my two girls when they were younger (due to some health issues), and I’m pretty sure I suffered from depression. Not having the adult interaction all day made me want to lay in my jammies and watch Hallmark. Good for you for speaking your true feelings!!
