The Life of a Stay At Home Mom, as told through16 animated gifs

A Day In The Life of a Stay-At-Home-Mom....as told through 16 hilarious, animated gifs

This morning was cold and I didn’t want to get out of bed to get the kids off to school. So I decided to share a little glimpse into the life of a stay at home mom. But just talking about it is boring, so I’m going to illustrate it with the help of some gifs. Simply hover your cursor over each one for movement. Enjoy!

1. Drag Yourself Out of Bed
You don’t want to. All you’ve wanted for the last 10 years is sleep, but children never sleep (not all at the same time anyway). And the precious hours they do sleep, you’re catching up on your own life. Morning comes and you start all the drudgery again.



2. Wake Up The Kids
This should be pleasant. On weekends, they’re up at 6 on their own. But when you want to wake them up at 7 on a school morning, they’re having the deepest sleep of their lives. Good luck with that.



3. Breakfast Time!
The kids are awake, now it’s time for a quick, nutritious breakfast before heading out the door. What could go wrong here?



4. Pack lunchboxes
It doesn’t matter what you put in there, really. They won’t want it. You gave them peanut butter and jelly yesterday, but they wanted turkey. Today you packed turkey, but they want pizza. Meh.



5. Drive the Kids to School
They’ve procrastinated as much as they can and you cannot get this morning routine done fast enough. Get them into class!



6. Parent Meeting and Volunteer Time
Your kids will have the best school ever! And as an added bonus, you can make some friends…if only you felt more like you fit in and less like you’re back in high school.



7. Errands!
Sounds awful. But really, there are very few feelings as good as being able to go grocery shopping by yourself. Very few.



8. Home!
Unload those groceries and relax a few. This is as quiet as your day is going to be and it’s going to be great. Getting a car from Oprah is not even as good as this.



9. Coffee!
One million mommies served. The truth is, without coffee, you have no super powers. Drink up!



10. Straighten Up
That coffee saves the day here. Clean everything up super fast, before the tornadoes come back through.



11. The Kids Are Home
And it all goes out the window. Welcome home kids.



12. Homework Time!
You’re supposed to be the authority and helping, but you have no idea what some of this stuff is.



13. Dinner Time
Feed those hungry natives!



14. Get The Kids to Bed
Who knows what kind of partying they will miss? Sadness ensues.



15. Mommy Time!
You should be in bed. But this is your chance to read, Facebook and Pinterest. Sleep is for the weak! You didn’t get it yesterday and you don’t need it today.



16. Time For Bed
Get your 4 hour recharge on and do it all again tomorrow.
