If I were a SAHM...

Some days, I find myself lost in the throes of a daydream.where we are fabulously wealthy and I am a stay at home mom (SAHM).

If I were a stay at home mom my family would frequently have home cooked meals. Homemade waffles with fruit for breakfast, lunch is every man for himself and then I would have something delicious simmering in the crock pot or whip up a fabulous feast for dinner. As it is now, the family is lucky if I cook once a week. *Le sigh*

If I were a stay at home mom I would keep the kiddos busy. I would cart them all over town to fun little play dates, swim lessons or parks. They would never be bored. I would have time to put together all of the fun little crafts I've seen and bookmarked in my Parents magazine.

If I were a stay at home mom my house would finally be clean and organized. Or, at least I'd like to think so. As it currently is, I'm sitting on the couch surrounded by clean laundry that needs to be folded. I'm typing rather than folding and thinking that all this folding can wait until tomorrow.

If I were a stay at home mom I would be filled to the brim with kid time. I feel like I miss so much of my little guys life sometimes. I always worry if he's being loved enough, if he's being treated nicely, if he's learning something new or if he's thinking about me. If I were a stay at home mom I would be able to make sure they were getting all of the above.

If I were a stay at home mom, my house would be beautifully organized. Eeverytime someone comes to visit I'm always apologizing for the mess.

If I were a stay at home mom I would stay in sweatpants...until noon...and then I might consider showering and getting dressed. Mmmmm. Sounds tempting, doesn't it?
