Incredibly enough for me though, I am supported by an amazing man of God who sees these desires of my heart and whole heartedly stands behind them. He is not the type of man to come home and find something i neglected to do, or be jealous of that fact that i was home with the kids while he worked hard. He always finds something wonderful to say, even on days when nothing gets done. He knows that our children are loved and played with, not ignored or sat in front of a TV for hours. Some women have husbands that have different expectations of dinner on the table, the house to be clean, and i am in full support of this relationship as well. Each marriage is different and if Bryce were to require a pristine home, i would find a way to get that done! I do still try my hardest to do the things he doesn't ask, have dinner ready, the house clean, the children happy and well fed, the cupboards full of food, and his laundry clean and folded. You will notice that i am very traditional in my belief that I was created to be Bryce's help meet. I believe God made me to help Bryce achieve his goals, his vision, what he was designed for. Without me he would have the distractions of keeping our home to keep him from these goals, but with me he can move forward and know that our home is under control.
I hope that you see this blog as encouragement to you, that you are an amazing mother and you're doing a fabulous job! So your house isn't clean, your child will not remember that at the end of the day. I know from experience that what they remember is if you're always unwilling to play so that you can clean. The number one piece of advice i've received from older mothers is to spend less time concerned about your home and more time with your children, because, as everyone will tell you, it goes by way to fast!
