Five Things...

...that cause me to question my vocation of stay at home mom:

1. My shirt never manages to stay completely dry when I wash the dishes.
2. I do not own an apron and haven't since I was 7 years old.
3. Not only can I not sew, I don't even want to.
4. I am a mediocre cook, and only slightly better at baking.
5. While I appreciate a clean house, I do not appreciate cleaning the house.

...that affirm my choice to be a stay at home mom:

1. Big D!
2. Little D.
3. M.
4. C.
5. J.

Thank you, God, for allowing me to have this wonderful job of taking care of my family!

I affirm your choice to stay at home too!

Because:
1. Shirts that get wet while doing dishes can be considered washed and worn more than once.

2. Aprons are cute, but highly over-rated.

3. Why do you need or want to sew when you can buy clothes?

4. You aren't a mediocre baker, your repertoire is just limited to a few excellent treats...why mess with a good thing?

5. Cleaning your house may not be your thing, but you do it well. Plus, isn't that what you had kids for?
