Sometimes I get this sneaking suspicion that some people think I’m a freak of nature.
I mean, I live 35 miles from the nearest grocery store and stay at home all day with our daughter and a boatload of animals and chores.
And I like it.
People see that I’m not always clamoring for ways to get out of the house, or trying to find every possible “playgroup” just so I have something to do, or driving to the library for the toddler storytime every day, and I think they assume I’m some sort of anti-social hermit.
Generally, I only head to the “big city” about twice per month for shopping or appointments. (We attend a small country church in the neighboring town (pop. 250) 10 miles away, so that does provide some closer social interaction.)
Join me over at The Better Mom today where I’m sharing a few of my simplest tips for staying sane as a stay-at-home mom. You can apply these ideas even if you live smack dab in the middle of the city, too. 😉
