10 Things I Love About Being A Stay At Home Mum

I absolutely love being a stay at home mum! There’s nothing better! I can go on and on about how great it is, but I’ll just name a few reasons here:

  1. I get to be with my kids. This would be a given, of course, that’s why we stay home right? But honestly, I think there are some mum’s that don’t really appreciate this, they just do it anyways. I love to be with my kids. They mean everything to me and being able to spend my day with them makes every day worth waking up to.
  2. I get to cook for my kids. I want the best for them! Who doesn’t right?! Well, this way I can make sure that they are getting all the proper nutrition and eating right. I can cook a healthy meal and monitor their intake and keep the sugar at a minimum.
  3. I get to teach them their habits. Habits are learned. I’ve seen so many kids who misbehave, and the parents tell me they learned it from some kid at school, or day care. This way, I do not have to deal with that. I am their primary influence for now and they don’t learn much of anything I don’t want them to.
  4. I can monitor what the kids watch on television. I’m not so uppity that they don’t get to watch television, but I do get to at least control what they watch. If it isn’t proper for them or teach them good things, they don’t get to watch it.
  5. I get to watch them create their masterpiece! I love art time! I let my kids paint and draw, and cut and create art work that is just fabulous! I love to see their creativity shine and watch their imagination grow as they figure out their own artistic abilities."stay at home mum bonding with child"
  6. I can have my “me” time too! My kids are still at that age where they take an afternoon nap. Love it! They get some shut eye and I do some things around the house for myself, read a book, or whatever I want, and I can still keep an eye on them.
  7. I can clean house while I’m home with them. I love to be able to get my own chores done while they do theirs, or while they are reading, or enjoying their own fun time. What more could you ask for? To be able to multi task is so great!
  8. I run my own time. I get to chose when to run to the store and when to get my errands done. I just put the kids in the car with me and off we go! The kids love getting out of the house, and we can usually make a fun trip out of almost everything. They don’t always enjoy the grocery shopping, but it’s easy enough to find ways to make it enjoyable for them too.
  9. I don’t have to worry about who’s caring for them. That is just such a relief and even though you may think you can read someone…you never know. I don’t have to worry if they are getting enough attention, or if they are being hurt in any way, or even neglected. I’m there all the time and it’s a relief.
  10. I don’t miss a smile. Said it already, love being with my kids. I just love that I am with them every day, all the time, so I don’t miss those special moments. Their first smile, word, walk…I’ve been there through it all.
