I was lucky. That is the truth. My dad hired me right out of college and I had a great job that I could do from anywhere. I worked from home, from hotel rooms when my husband had to travel, etc. I had it made. I knew that I was in a great position to have kids, because I could be a WAHM. You know, that one thing every woman strives for. To stay at home with the kids and earn an income at the same time. It really is the dream. That is not a lie. I would not trade it for the world.
The one thing no one told me is that it would be ridiculously hard. It may be my own fault for having 3 kids in three years. That one is on me, but it is So. Hard. Right after I had Weston, I had a lot of sponsored posts on my blog and Instagram. The holidays are the busiest season in blog land, after all. I couldn’t really take any “time off” and so I took a week off during the holidays instead. It was so needed because I was honestly about to lose my mind. Since the new year, I told myself that posting three times a week would be the best thing for me and my family. While it has definitely freed up more time with my kids, I haven’t felt like I have really been able to write about everything I wanted to this past month. It is now February (craziness) and I am still trying to figure out if I want to continue to post only 3 times or go back to 5.
Being a WAHM is the most rewarding thing in the world because you really do have the best of both worlds. I have the opportunity to contribute to our finances and raise our babies at home. I get to take a million breaks a day to cuddle with them or read to them or go for a walk and it is so wonderful! The other side to it is that I spend most nights working until midnight. I work during nap time instead of rest. Most days I am running on fumes. So, is it worth it? Absolutely! But, it is tough.
Would you guys rather see 5 posts a week or 3? What do you want to see more of on my blog this year?
