This is me. I’m not very important at all. As a matter of fact, I’m so very unimportant in the grand scheme of important things. I’m a
stay-at-home mom…or a housewife…or a domestic goddess…
Actually, I am none of those things. I don’t really feel like I fit into any of those titles. Therefore, I am renaming my job. From now on I will be called the Chief Tribe Officer because, let’s face it, I pretty much keep tidy the rearing of a whole new generation of people who will grow up, become members of society, procreate, and hopefully bring joy into the world with their super powers of awesomeness!
I may not go to business dinners and wear fancy high heel shoes, but I can make a peanut butter and honey sandwich in a pair of converse sneakers while wearing a baby and listening to NPR despite someone throwing a tantrum at my feet. As if that doesn’t sound sophisticated enough, I also spend my days traveling around town with a circus of loud busyness in a vehicle that could double as a trash barge or an oversized toy box.
A good day for me is my favorite pair of jeans being clean and not a giant amount of drama, which is nearly impossible in a house with three little girls, a 90 pound golden retriever who eats EVERYTHING, and a husband who is pretty awesome to talk to until he starts rambling off IT jargon that makes my eyes roll back into my head and sends me into convulsions.
Long gone are the days of June Cleaver. Stay-at-home moms aren’t what they used to be. We no longer answer the door in pearls and a pinafore. We don’t send our kids off to school with brown sack lunches and kiss their cheeks as they walk out the door one by one. I’ll be darned if we serve our husbands a fresh packed pipe and a newspaper right before slipping on a pair of oven mits to remove the pot roast from the oven. Sometimes we have it all together, sometimes we don’t, but one thing we do with great passion and consistency is love the heck out of our family and find a decent balance in life by caring for these humans we brought forth into the world. This blog is a proclamation of the events involved in doing so.
