Someone posted a link to this blog yesterday on stay at home moms. Being a stay at home mom doesn't mean you have so much free time to do anything. I can barely get anything done. Yesterday it took all day to just do two loads of laundry because Elinor was demanding other activities. It doesn't help that every mealtime is longer than the last. "Just one bite please!" I love spending so much one on one time with her though. I love seeing her face when we read a new book, go to a sing along, take a class or do a new craft project. She is talking so much more and learning more everyday.
I'm sure Matt Walsh's post will make its way around the internet very quickly and I hope people read it. He sticks up for his wife who chooses to stay at home with their children. It's crazy that people with children would think staying home isn't a job. People have even said to me that nannying isn't a real job. Caring for a child, teaching a child, loving a child all day is one of the most important jobs!
