Today you will find me posting at the Family Eden blog.

Remember that I’ll be posting for Family Eden every other Wednesday.

Today’s post – Mami Expectations

A teaser:

My mother brainwashed me when she raised me. And, I mean that in a nice way.

You see, through example, she managed to ingrain certain ideals in my head.

I now have what my husband says are high (and false) expectations of myself.

Be sure to leave some comments over there as well.

Very nice post about SAHM. I consider myself one (wk part time outside home) and like you my mother was SAHM/housewife for part of my life as well. She did an amazing job keeping it all together. I’m the mother to 3 young boys and seven year later, I’m still struggling to make sense my life as an educated mother who chooses to stay home with my children. There are so many people who impose (well meaning, I’m sure) pressures on me to go back to the workforce. And, honestly some days I miss it, but I’m afraid I’ll miss more if I go back. That’s my two cents on the matter and (if you visit my blog you’ll have proof) I’m no expert:)!

Thanks for stopping by, parenting by dummies. I’m actually a working mom (work full-time outside the home), not a SAHM. We all deal with the pressure I suppose.
