What Friday Night Is Like For a Stay-at-Home Mom

Jun 20 2014 - 4:32pm

In the beginning of my time as a stay-at-home mom, my husband and I had a very hard time adjusting to Friday nights. He was excited to be done with a grueling workweek, while I felt like I was living in the movie Groundhog Day and Friday was no different from any other day. See, it's not that we don't enjoy the weekends, it's just that for a mama who's at home all day (all week!) with the kids, Fridays aren't what they used be.

It starts off good when husband tells you he's going to be home early today, so you're pumped.

But then he calls to say he's swamped and can't leave early after all.

And when you hang up, this happens.

When your husband finally comes home, he's all . . .

And you're all . . .

Especially because it's pizza night at your house (again).

Over pizza also happens to be when your husband tells you he has a tee time in the morning.

But you move on because you're just ready for the kids to go to bed.

Once they're in bed, you try to relax in front of the TV, even though there's nothing good on.

You try Dateline, but it makes you oddly suspicious of your spouse.

And just as you're about to fire up Facebook . . .

Your husband is all, "I have a better idea."

Except you're all . . .

Because sleeping in on Saturday ended the day you brought that baby home.
