5 things you should never say to a Stay-at-home-Mom

Link to a parenting blog - Momatello

When people hear the title Stay At Home Mom (dad/parent/grandparent, etc..I just say Mom because that’s what I answer to), some of them immediately think we have it super easy.  I mean, after all, we don’t have a boss we answer to just a 2 and 5-year-old and we don’t have to wake up super early for a job we just never sleep. What more could you ask for?

Me Time & Mom Time…at the Same Time? It’s Possible!

Have time to yourself while your kids play

When you become a parent, you dedicate your entire life to caring for another life. Quickly, you learn the importance of putting others needs before your own. You happily give them all of your time, your space, your love, and sometimes your food (when they get a bit older), amongst many other things.
