I have a really good topic my friend Natasha asked me to blog about for this weeks #TTMT!
Natasha is a soon to be mom, and a soon to be SAHM as well. She will be leaving her job to stay at home with her little bundle of joy, which is truly a blessing. I know I am very grateful I can a SAHM, but I also have my days where I get stir crazy, or miss talking to “humans” instead of baby talk all day. Haha.
So, Natasha would love to have any tips/advice on staying sane as a SAHM, how to make the transition easier, and how to handle people giving crap to moms who do decide to be a SAHM!
Since I have been a SAHM for a while now, I only have a little bit of advice to give her, and hoping newly SAHM’s can help out in the comments!
- First, know how rewarding it is that you can have this opportunity to be a SAHM and be with your little one full time.
- Join a mommy group! Mommy groups are a great way to connect with other moms, moms that are SAHM too, and a way to get out!
- It can be a long day with a baby, make sure if you have help from a significant other, family , or friend to take it! I know when Mike gets home it’s nice for me to have a little break, just to get a shower or a workout in!
- Don’t let negativity bother you, people do bash SAHM’s but it is a damn hard job, not a piece of cake! Being a mom is the hardest job in the world, SAHM or not!
So those are just a couple tips I have for Natasha! If anyone else has any advice, tips, or support for her, please leave them in a comment!
Congrats Natasha, so soon your little baby girl will be here! Will be one of the most beautiful days of your life!
See you guys tomorrow!
