Stay-At-Home Mom Problems
You know the saying “first world problems?” I am quite sure you have heard it somewhere whether it be on social media or in your real life conversations. If you are on Twitter there is even a hashtag you can follow: #firstworldproblems.
Anyway, I may have a few first world problems but last night I realized that I have a few stay-at-home mom problems.
What can these stay-at-home mom problems be you ask?
Here is my list:
- When your dishwasher schedule is off. For instance, we like to run our dishwasher at night while we are sleeping so that a) we can hear the TV better, and b) the dishes have ample time to dry before we put them away (we do not use the heat to dry option to conserve energy because we are good Earth lovers like that).
- Constantly being interrupted by a three year old to play trains, a card game, or read Chica Chica 1-2-3 while you are trying to get work done. And by work I mean checking Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram and perhaps your four different email addresses. Oh and maybe throw in a bit of your contract work that you actually get paid to do.
- Being asked for a snack a million times after you just gave the child a snack only five minutes ago. Especially annoying when you are meeting with a friend to go over a very important position in your local Kinette club that you just took on.
- When your laundry schedule is off as well. I usually do laundry on the weekend so that we all have clean clothes to get us through the week (as some people need to look presentable for jobs and/or school). But sometimes something happens and the laundry multiplies before my very eyes and a load needs to go in part way through the week.
- Folding laundry. For some reason no matter how long I leave it, it still never seems to fold itself.
- Homework. Enough said.
- Dishes left in the sink. The dishwasher is right next to said sink but yet it seems that my family has forgot how to open it.
- Being in charge of the family calendar of events. There is just so much to remember.
- Changing the toilet paper roll. Somehow this is always a task left for me.
- Cleaning up toys and/or bedrooms. No one knows how to clean a room better than I can. Or at least I know all of the good hiding spots.
- I am the finder of all things. I have x-ray vision when it comes to finding my family’s lost items. Although, occasionally something will slip past me.
I could write a probably a hundred more stay-at-home mom problems but you would probably get bored and fall asleep during my ramblings.
Tell me what are some of your stay-at-home mom problems.
