The 30 Day Writing Challenge: Day1

I have decided to attempt this 30 day writing challenge and see how well I do.  I found this challenge upon glancing through a fellow mommy blogger’s blog “Humblefit Blog

Day 1 is to write basic things about yourself…

Today we visited the accountant to get our taxes all in order and the nice man behind the desk asked me if there was a second W2 to add to the forms.  In which I replied, “no”.  He then looked at me and while saying the word he also wrote it down….”housewife”.  I chuckled to myself and asked if there was a box that said, “domesticated goddess”?  He looked at me strangely and proceeded to carry on with his work.  I don’t take any kind of offense to being called a housewife but let’s face it, there are a lot of titles rolled into that one precise word.

I am a mother, wife, chauffeur, nurse, referee, chef, housekeeper, kisser of all boo boo’s, teacher, official toosh wiper, dentist, psychologist, CEO of all of Souzaville, coupon cutter, grocery shopper, laundry expert, story teller, computer specialist, cheerleader, dancer, planner, landscaper, counselor, warden, and let’s not forget….a certified momster!

Statistics claim that the average stay at home mom averages 95 hours a week worth of work.  That’s equivalent to 2 full time jobs in case anyone was having problems with the math.  Is being a SAHM laborious? Not always.  Yes there is always a mess to clean up and housework to be done.  We live in a house with 7 people so of course it’s never neat and tidy all at once.

Being a stay at home mom is not all that defines who I am.  But it is the biggest “make-up” of myself.

My “life pie diagram” would look something like this…

Although the friend and wife part could fluctuate between one another, because sometimes I am a better wife then a friend and vice versa.  But being a mom never changes.  It is the biggest part of my life and who I am.  And nothing about it is basic.  Being a human is “basic”.  Same basic needs…food, love, shelter, etc.  But being a mom…well that’s a superpower!

I am a mother of 5, a wife to 1, and a fully certified domesticated momster who likes to blog about motherhood, marriage, and anything else that pops into my crazy head all with a side of sarcasm and a glass of wine.

  1. I can relate to all of that, now not the wife part but still the mother, head of the house etc. Since I’ve gone back to work though it’s a bit less clean and a bit less organised.

    I’ve never been big on the term ‘house-wife’, when asked – my grilfriend used to say that she ran a small business, if any-one asked what the business was she said ‘my home’.

    It’s a huge job, well done!

    1. I just chuckled at the accountant …he really did look at me like I was crazy when I told him “domesticated goddess” …I will return to the work force someday…in the meantime I will carry on with my superpowers! 😉

      1. I think of those, as well as the housewives of the 50’s, in their nice dresses, full hair and make-up, dinner on the table at 5 (including multiple courses), etc.

  2. Spot on, if anything you are fortunate enough to be able to afford to stay home with the kids. Your life your choice, they are not young for long after all. Treasure every moment.
