“My baby’s got this funky rash and I googled it and I think she might have -“insert crazy medical term here”-”
“Girl, you usin’ that Johnson and Johnson?!? Oh no you didn’t!”
“No, I’m not gonna tell daddy, but girl she had to eat 15 Popsicles while he was at work today. I know, right, I had to. She was bouncin’ off the walls today!”
“And she had the nerve to tell me that she only got 5 hours of sleep last night…do what?!? I was like, girl I haven’t had 5 hours all week!”
“You won’t believe this…Shelia told me she just went and turned the baby monitor off!?! Uh-uh, oh no!”
For real though, stay at home moms be like…the most amazing women ever! In my opinion, a stay at home mom is like a mix between a navy seal, a ninja, MacGyver, Betty Crocker, Wonder Woman, and maybe even a little Benny Hinn. A navy seal because you are tougher than nails and seem to be prepared for anything. A ninja because you can magically rock a baby to sleep, get up and walk to the crib, and lay her down without her ever even knowing you were in the room. MacGyver because your diaper bag is filled to the brim with any and every possible contraption needed to resolve any possible situation. Betty Crocker because you can whip up a healthy meal with any ingredient you can find. Wonder Woman because you can function on little to no sleep but still have the energy to be the best mommy a child could ever wish for. And maybe, just maybe, a hint of Benny Hinn because you can magically heal almost any boo-boo with the kiss of your lips. (Thank the Lord, it’s your kiss and not your forehead punch or we’d have to call social services!😜) If you don’t know Benny Hinn watch this. All puns aside, you are truly, absolutely amazing!
I think most people don’t realize how much you do everyday. For those of us that have an 8 to 5, we got it made because you are on call 24 hours a day. Your normal day starts around 6, maybe 7 (if she sleeps) and ends when you get her back to sleep at the end of the day (that is if she sleeps, of course). You’re a chef, a teacher, a comforter, an entertainer, a chauffeur, a planner, a nurse, a counselor, the list goes on and on but most importantly you are a mother. You are an amazing woman with amazing talents! Most people hope to have at least one gift or talent, you however are gifted in so many ways!
You are blessed to have one of the best stay at home moms! Everything mentioned above describes your mommy plus more. She’s the one that calms you when you’re crying. She’s the one that you call out for at night. She’s the one who cooks your every meal. She’s the one that takes you to the park. She’s the one that teaches you something new everyday. When daddy wakes you up in the morning, the first thing you say is, “where’s mommy?” Even though daddy tries so hard, sometimes he just can’t compete with what you and your mommy have. The bond of a mother and daughter is something amazing to see. Your mommy loves you more than anything in the world. And it doesn’t take long to see that you love mommy like that too. We’re so lucky to have such an amazing stay at home mom. God is Good!
