The Other Side Of Life

So now that the business is up and running, I thought I'd spend some time sharing a bit more about the other side of life. That is, life as a stay at home mum.

Anyone with (young) kids would know that life gets very busy. Nappy changes, food preparation, craft activities, book reading, games of imaginary proportions, etc. And then there's the constant teaching of how to do life in general, how to/not to treat others, how to have self-control, how to behave in certain situations, how to deal with your emotions, how to love. Being a parent is hard work!!! Sometimes it can feel like all the long hours have gone to waste but then suddenly a corner is turned and you see a distinct change, a better choice made voluntarily, an act of love between two sisters....and it's all worth it.

I find myself learning every day, about myself, about my kids, about how to do life as a stay at home mum as efficiently and effectively as I can. Let's face it, no one has EVERYTHING together. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, but the key is to remain humble and teachable. And by God's grace we will get through it just fine.


  1. Hi,

    I am also a stay at home mum taking everything a step at a time. Being humble and being appreciative (thankful to God) in everything is also another key to face life.
