I'm in the process of learning how to be a good housewife. Its not that my mother didn't teach me how to keep a home. She did. She taught me how to clean, how to cook, how to take care of laundry and such. But I'm just learning now how much goes into keeping up a home. Its not doing the dishes once a week, or the laundry every once in awhile. Its a constant on going process. No matter how much I get done there is always something else that needs cleaning.
I'm also learning how to fit in this job of housewife in with my other two jobs as wife and mother. I have learned that naptime makes for a wonderful time to clean. I can't believe how much I can get done within two hours. I am learning that maybe my laundry needs to be done more often and the dishes can also be done sooner than later. Its taken a little time for me to catch on, and sometimes I'm discouraged when I talk to other women. I feel like they're super woman and I'm just failing at this, haha:) Today is definitely one of those days when I feel like no matter how hard I try my house will never stay clean.
I do think that some women have an easier time adjusting to the role as housewife. I am not one of them. I do not enjoy all of the tasks that come along with being a housewife. Some women enjoy it. It takes a lot of discipline on my part to do laundry, and sweep. Thankfully I have a very understanding husband who helps me out when he cans. He never complains when things are undone, instead offers to help me out. I'm so blessed.
Although there is always some type of house work to be done, I am trying to remember to just stop and take time to be with my Father, my husband and my baby. Housework will always be here, but these moments won't. And I may not be the perfect housewife but I'm trying here!
What are you favorite chores/lease favorite to do around the house?
