Miscellany Monday...

Since I have a few ramblings going on inside my head on this beautiful Monday, I thought I should link up with Miscellany Monday.


1. I heard on the radio this morning that a recent study found that Stay-at-home moms have the most stressful job compared to moms who work outside the home.  Stay-at-home moms scored lower on a mental health test than moms who worked outside the home. 


2.  I took B school shopping a few weeks ago and she found a shirt that said: "I ♥ Justin Bieber."  It also had a picture of Justin inside the heart.  She begged me to get it.  I told her, "You don't even know who that is."
Her reply, " Uh-huh, Mom!  It's Justin Beaver!"
I didn't let her get the shirt, but she did get a stuffed animal that day which she affectionately named, "Justin Beaver".

3. I didn't want to wake up so early this morning.  I wanted to sleep in.  I have been really tired lately (need to get on the ball and start taking my iron pill again).  But, I got out of bed so that I could be a responsible parent and have B ready in time to catch the bus.  I do get more done on school days because I have to get up earlier.  I had 2 loads of laundry done by 8:30 a.m and they were hanging on the line and blowing in the breeze by 9!

4.  I sometimes feel like some people are inconvenienced by my kids. 
I know this shouldn't bother me, but it does.
The majority of these people, don't have kids themselves.  To these people I say, "I hope someday you are blessed with children of your own.  I hope you then realize that they aren't an inconvenience, but a joy that your entire life revolves around."


Happy Monday friends!!!

  1. I'd believe stay at home moms are more stressed. it seems from the time we get up until we collapse into bed, there is very little downtime.

    I've felt like my kids inconvenience others. It's a lousy feeling but one I'm trying to overcome. happy monday to you too.

  2. Stopping by from Monday Mingle, and a new follower! I can attest 100% to the mom thing. I joke that I want to get a full time job so I can leave the house to relax!
