For the past year I have been a homemaker, cooking, cleaning, and doing the weekly shopping. The role of stay at home wife was forced upon me as I, along with many other people across the country, was laid off. Not only was now out of a job, I was also forced to quit doing something that I really enjoyed and that I know I was good at. I worked as a behavior analysis tutor helping children who have autism. After going through a period of adjustment, I have truly come to love my new job as a domestic diva.

I have recently joined the world of stay at home moms, or SAHM. On Christmas day, I had come to discover that I was pregnant after nearly five months of being unemployed. Not exactly the best timing, but things happen.

I have chosen not to return to work to stay home. I feel that being a mother and a wife is my calling.

Throughout my pregnancy I dedicated a lot of my time to doing research on how to save money while raising a baby. So many things that you have to buy add up so quickly; diapers, wipes, formula, baby food... I realized that many of these necessary items can be made at home with minimal ingredients.

Join me in my journey through SAHMhood as I learn and grow about being the best wife and mother that I can be.
