Where are my fellow stay-at-home moms at? Please tell me that I’m not alone in feeling unmotivated and just plain lazy some days. I struggled with this especially when it was just me and Violet at home every day (before my youngest was born). I feel like the more kids you have, it’s probably easier to stay active because you have no other choice. But when you stay home, and have 1-2 kids, I think that it’s probably easy to fall into the trap of laziness.
Last year, probably around this time actually, I was really convicted in this area. I have worked a regular job since I was 17, so when I decided to stay home after I had my first baby, I really didn’t know what to do with myself. I was also pregnant with my second baby, and sick, so it was sometimes a struggle to even get out of bed. I remember reading Proverbs 31 in a bible study, a chapter I was already familiar with, but God used it to prick my heart in a new way.
