- You wake up and get their bottles ready while they scream at you because you are taking too long.
- You change 2 sets of diapers (sometimes a few times when they decide they were not finished yet)
- You have play time for about an hour, sometimes longer, which may not seem like a lot of work with 3 month olds, but their attention span is very small. So I've constantly got to move them around or they'll fuss.
- Then it's nap time. You would think, oh you get a break then right? Wrong. That's when I clean the bottles, get myself cleaned up, do the laundry, make a meal, or just have a cup of coffee if I can. Now nap time also is not consistent. They will sometimes sleep for and hour and a half or twenty minutes at a time and then the cycle repeats.
Repeat this throughout the day every 3 hours and that pretty much sums up my day, every day. I'm not complaining at all. This is what I chose to do, I chose to be a stay at home mom and I love every minute of it. I'm just letting everyone know what the life of a stay at home mom is like because it really gets to me when people think that stay at home moms shouldn't be tired, or "Just play all day". That is not the case.
