Being the mother of a new baby is anything but easy; it's probably one of the most demanding jobs in the world. But still, I believe my work is not half as stressful as my husband's.
Yes, I have to be available to attend to my baby's needs 24/7, but I don't have a mean-tempered boss and/or clients breathing down my neck. I don't have to compete with anyone, or worry that someone else might take my place.
My job as wife and Mom is largely unaffected by today's economical crisis. Yes, it might mean I pinch pennies, or go without new clothes for a while, but I don't have to worry I might lose my job because budget is low.
I nurse my baby, which means my daily routine includes frequent breaks of relaxing in an armchair with my little sweetheart in my arms, and a glass of water. It's a time of rest and often prayer. My husband, like most men, doesn't have this kind of luxury at his job.
If I'm very tired, or not feeling well, I can limit my activity to bare minimum. I don't have to always try to outperform myself. All that matters is that I'm here, with lots of love. My baby is delighted to see me even if it's noon and I'm still in my pajamas and my hair is a mess; which work place will give you that?
Taking care of my baby is fun. I get to spend every hour of the day with my daughter, which includes an unlimited amount of giggles, kisses and cuddles. Our husbands, more often than not, don't have a chance to spend so much time with their children.
How blessed we mothers are.
