Never say this to a Stay at Home Parent

“Must be nice!” This comment really gets under my skin. Just in general it screams, you’re privileged and I’m not, you just get everything handed to you and I have to suffer, in general it’s just an extremely rude comment to make about anything but especially a comment to a stay at home mom or stay at home working mom/parent. It alludes to the idea that what that mom/parent does at home doesn’t carry much value & that they’re basically flaking off all responsibility because they’re at home. Well, to be fair, it’s the tone and often snarky insinuation that accompanies the comment. As if that person stating the comment is the hardest worker in the entire world while the person at home is just binge watching shows & eating bonbons. Here’s some hard facts…

Purging Kids Toys, Books, & Clothes? Repurpose, Swap, and Sell!

This anxious feeling came over me this morning as I glanced at the calendar and realized the kids literally have one week left of school!! How can that be, it feels like they just went back to school. Oh wait, they did, lol! After being home for what seemed like an eternity and then hybrid learning for a minute, I blinked and their in-person learning for 5 days a week is practically over, which means they’re gonna be home, AGAIN!! What’s a mom to do? I don’t know about y’all but this momma isn’t wasting one second, I’m PURGING STAT! I’m getting rid of everything they grew out of almost two years ago, all the books they no longer read, toys they no longer play with, etc. I’m officially in that “everything has gotta go” mentality. But where is it going?
