Tonight, I was reading another mom's blog and she wrote about a topic that I have lately been struggling with. Missy is a working mother, who is actually pregnant at the time. She is what I (and lots of others) call a "do-it-all" mom. I was responding to her blog and while doing so, I said "I wish I could be a do-it-all mom." After I said that, I thought to myself and also called myself out in her blog..that is a lie. I don't want to be a DIAM*. I think maybe deep down I wish I wanted to be one. Is it wrong that I don't want to be one? I love staying home and caring for Graycen all day. It is my joy to take care of her, teach her things, watch her be adventurous and our little explorer. Being home all day, I have found a different part of myself. In writing this, I realized..I AM a DIAM. Just not in the way of having a career and family at the same time. I am happy and content with my life. I actually wish we had more kids right now and that I never had to work again. Yep..I said it! I don't want to work. Not because I don't enjoy working, because surprisingly, I do enjoy it A LOT! I just want to be at home with my kids all day. We'll see what the future holds for me. To all of the other mothers that are a DIAM, good for you! If it works for you and you can enjoy and be happy with it..then I admire you!! Really, I do.
*DIAM= do it all mom
