Like It Or Not

Submitted by jolene

By popular demand (or at the request of my husband) I will be writing today's post. I have been racking my brain the last few days on what to write about and have come to the conclusion that I am an expert in one thing and one thing only… being a mom.

This doesn't mean that I know everything there is to know about parenting or being a housewife, it simply means that this is what I do every day. It's my "job" if you will, and I'm sure everyone likes to think they are an expert at their job.

The question I pose and often ask myself is… are the rewards of being a full time mom greater than the struggles? I can't give a definite answer to this question. Although I love my kids more than I can express, there are days when I would like nothing more than to put a muzzle on them both, lock them in their rooms and go shopping, or perhaps have a relaxing pedicure!

Some days I can't believe how "perfect" my girls are, and I can't get enough of them. On those days I feel like the sacrifice of a two income household, having all of the wants in life, and the pleasure of adult conversation is all worth it. But then there are the bad days...

Thanks to my wife for taking time out of her busy day to humor me. I think she has good things to say, and is a better writer than she gives herself credit for. Keep reading over the next month for the continuation of 'Like It Or Not.' This was only a taste of things to come.
