If a Stay at Home Mom (SAHM) wrote a poem…..

mom is proud being stay at home mom - ZenParent

I was having a conversation about stay-at-home mums,  and on my feed a friend posted this sweet but really true poem.  It resonated with me. Does it with you?

 

 

Tell me SAHMS, can you relate to this ?

I thought, if I stayed home, I will be more patient and relaxed.
But only my husband and kids could tell if that is true.

I thought, if I stayed home, I will be able to teach my kids some more.
But ended up with complaints that mom is a nag.

I thought if I stayed home, I will cook healthy and try interesting dishes.
But ended up with the feeling of not wanting to enter the kitchen anymore.

I thought, if I stayed home, I will be a better housekeeper.
But with all that constant clutter around, I simply want to disappear.

I thought if I stayed home, I will be a better mom, better wife and a better human being.

No matter what the other things turn out to be,
I sincerely wish that just this one last thought will always be true.
