So with me being a SAHM, I haven’t really gotten into a routine.With Bubba becoming more independent, I find that I have longer stretches of time to do things that I need/want to do.
The only routine I have is a t.v. routine.Like 5 days out of the week, I know what I’m going to be watching all day. I figured if I could give myself that kind of dedication for my favorite t.v. programming, then I can dedicate myself to a household routine, in which I’m making both me and Bubba more productive.
Alot of my motivation came from the Young Mom Summit- Tips To Make The Most out of Being A Stay-At-Home-Mom over at The Young Mommy Life. Bubba needs time set aside for learning activities and mommy time, and she also needs to take a break from me too,.Let’s face it, she loves me just as much as I do her but I know I get on her nerves,too.
I have at least a good two hours before Bubba wakes up in the morning and I think I can take that time to tidy up a bit ( or alot depending on how lazy I was the day before), get some writing done, and catch up with my Twitter/ Facebook timelines. Once breakfast for Bubba is out of the way, I can go ahead and give her about an hour or two for learning and creative play. The thing I love about Bubba is she is excellent with her computer skillls, so our laptop doubles as her fun zone and academic stuff.
Mommy N is sort of my partner in my parenting situation and she has no problem taking over responsibilities for Bubba when I get to my boiling point and need a cooling off period,(like right now as I’m writing this post)
I know there are going to be days when things will happen totally unexpectedly as it always does with motherhood. I just have to remember that I can get through it and not to take myself so seriously. I chose to be a SAHM for Bubba’s benefit and I have to learn how to adapt myself to a situation that I haven’t been in in awhile.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER SAHMS OUT THERE? HOW DO YOU HANDLE LIFE DAY-TO-DAY?
