Confessions Of An ExtraSuper Mom

Out of the blue my husband asked what my dreams in life were when I was younger. He asked whether I dreamt about being a successful executive dressed in business suits and working in plush business offices. I gave this one a thought and I realized I am where I dreamt to be.

As far as I can recall, I never wished to be rich, powerful or even famous. When I was younger, I imagined myself as a wife and a mother and I really thought I would find fulfillment in being a homemaker. I do. I love being a wife and a mom to my 2 kids.

Although I have a college degree and I passed the board exam, having a successful career was never my top priority. Not that I'm no good as a career woman. I was considered an asset by one of our clients in my previous workplace. Even now that I'm a stay at home mom, I still try to give my best in everything that I do, whether in my online work or in taking care of my family.

Being a homemaker is never easy. I tend to become a catchall for everybody and everything around me. Others think that because I am always at home I have all the time in the world, but this is not true. Often, I don't have the time to do the things I need to do. There are times when I feel like I'm too busy doing things for others that I have no time for myself anymore.

But I am happy where I am now. Being who I am today gives my life a purpose and defines my reason for living. God is good! Life is good!

I think that being a homemaker is actually harder than going out to work.......and having the freedom to do what you want when you want as a homemaker...is definitely a bonus.....
