I'm "Their" Mom.

Katie - posted on 12/12/2014 ( 2 moms have responded )




I am a young mom of 25, and I have two beautiful boys. Judah is almost three, and Zachary is about five months now.

I have loved being a stay at home mom for my Son Judah, pouring into Him and watching Him grow, the things He says sometimes just amazes me. I am so proud to look at Him and know that the person He is learning from most, is me. My husband fully supports me being here with my boys and being the one to teach them life.

But I grew up in a family that both parents worked, and my Father had good but stern intentions for me and my sisters to grow up into women who always had great paying jobs. My Dad loves me, but sometimes in his passion for work and provision. I feel He looks down at me staying Home with my boys. I think He feels that it's a waste of time, and lazy.

And because I know him, I do understand where He comes from.
But How can I explain to Him that this is fruitful and this is what I love, that my boys are benefitting from this, and that many women all around the world have been doing this for centuries. I don't desire laziness. I desire to see great things in my boys and in my relationship with them...

At the end of the Day, I think about the things that have been spoken to me from others...and at the end of the Day I remember they are my children...and

(I'm "Their" Mom.)

I don't think you need to justify anything to anyone, it's your decision. How he feels should be inconsequential.

I think it's great that you are a stay at home mom. I wish I had the opportunity with my two boys. My advice is do what makes YOU happy. Show him how you staying with them is creating this beautiful and amazing relationship with your boys.
