So what I would really love to do is become a stay-at-home mom to my 7 month old daughter. There are a few teensy things preventing me from reaching my goal of staying home:

  1. My husband. Ok so he’s not really teensy (6’9”), but he is really a realist. And husband says that we need money (really?) – or maybe I could quit my job and hang out with the baby all day in our new home, the car.
  2. $$$ (see above). I hate cooking. I like shopping. I am afraid of turning into a MOM. You know what I’m talkin’ about. These things add up to many nights of eating out, and basically spending money that could be saved – and be put towards the ultimate goal: not working, and ALSO not being broke. Or frumpy.
  3. Mommy brain. Or more specifically, ADD with a side of baby. I see these mommas who are like, engineers of the homestead y’all! They DO exist, and I have to become one if I’m ever going to convince husband that having a full time at-home wife is the best thing ever. So, a little less of this:
    laundry fail

    Trixie does not know how to fold laundry.

    And a little more of this:


    Genius baby cooks the family dinner!

Goals. They can be reached. And on that note, I’m off to fold some laundry.

      I just tried to ‘like’ this comment. Me = facebook addict! I’m going to show this comment to my husband so he knows I’m not the only crazy person who says, ‘who needs money?’ 🙂
