Why I Respect Stay-At-Home Moms

Motherhood is hard, and there are so many reasons why stay-at-home moms are my heroes. Since they don’t get enough appreciation, I’ve made a list of all of the reasons why moms who work at their home are total rockstars.

Why Stay-At-Home-Moms Are My Heroes

  1. You are awesome. I’m not sure how you do what you do but I respect the heck out of you for doing it.
  2. Be proud of what you do.
  3. You can’t put a price tag on what you do.
  4. Don’t let other people tell you that you don’t work.
  5. If anyone belittles you because they take home a paycheck and you don’t, just ignore them. You selflessly work hard day in and day out and deserve just as big of a paycheck as they do.
  6. You are invaluable in the best way possible.
  7. You are not appreciated enough.
  8. You wear ten hats and look awesome while doing it.
  9. Mac and cheese is acceptable for supper sometimes.
  10. Your kids look up to you.
  11. If anyone tells you to get a job, tell them that you already have one; and you get something out of it that is far more precious than money. Time with your kids.
  12. Make sure to spend time loving yourself.
  13. Know that you are just as intelligent as the work outside of their home moms out there. You could have gotten a fancy career. This is your choice.
  14. You need your own time every day for yourself. We all need a break. I work forty hours a week but have an hour lunch break. My break is my “me time” and I always need to have one.
  15. Know that you can change your mind at any time or stay right where you are career wise. I went from staying home with my kid most of the time to working full time. Your children will be fine and love you either way.
  16. Make mom friends! Schedule play dates. Enjoy yourself. You don’t have to be a hermit just because you stay at home with the kids. Even if it’s just adding other stay-at-home moms on Instagram or if it’s going over to the neighbors and having morning mimosas. Kids thrive when their mom is happy.
  17. Most important, remember to BREATHE. Life flies by fast. Take time to take it all in while you can.
