Stay-at-Home Moms are not SAHMs because they're lucky, stupid, lazy, weak, scared, useless, spoiled, frightened, or any other condescending description. SAHMs are SAHMs because they realize the blessing of the opportunity to make a profound difference in their own lives, their families, their community, and ultimately the world as they coordinate the lives of their family members so that no one feels neglected, unimportant, or unloved because of the limited commitment of their parents.
Dr. Laura Schlessinger, In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms, pg 64.
Isn't this amazing? I just love it. I said to myself, "YEAH!!" I love my job. If I didn't stay home I would miss out on so much and I wouldn't be raising my children. I'm really glad for that chance. I'm sure their life will ultimately be my fault, because I blamed my parents once too, but at least I have the chance to mess up their life. LOL!!!
Then went back a few minutes later and found this. Our cat loves this spot.
If I didn't stay home I wouldn't be able to go help at the school and be at all the activities during the day. I am grateful for the choice I made to stay home. I also have a love and compassion for the mothers that choose to work out side the home. They have to make a big sacrifice too. They give up a lot as well. I don't know how you guys do it. I'm amazed at all you accomplish. You are good examples too.
I hope I have made nobody feel guilty, but at this point in my life I am grateful for who I am and what I am doing. I am glad to be able to stay home during the summer times and just play with the kids or not play too.
Being a mom is good!

Don't laugh at my S. My husband laughed at me because I hung it upside down. He changed it around for me. My husband actually painted these for me a few years ago.
I made these firecrackers about eight years ago when we still had "homemaking".
Don't mind my little pot with dead flowers. They gave up the fight to live.
Here is my silly welcome sign. Thank goodness for velcro. I change the ribbons for each holiday. I have had a lot of fun doing this.
I hope this a wonderful weekend for everyone. I told my family that nobody will be watching the fireworks in the van. EVERYONE is sitting out on the grass to watch. I don't care if anyone hides under a blanket, but EVERYONE IS GOING TO STAY ON THE GRASS. How's that for using my authority. We'll see if it actually works. I LOVE...LOVE...LOVE the fireworks and I remember being terrified of them. I actually remember as a child walking back to the car with my mother at the USU stadium. Anyway, have a great weekend!!
Life is good!!
