Top Four Necessities Every Stay At Home Mom Needs

Being a stay at home mom is one of the hardest jobs in the world.

I am going to tell you the absolute most important things you will need to survive your job as a stay at home mom.

Number one: Yoga Pants.

Okay, you know what. I am THAT mom. Yes, the mom who is constantly wearing yoga pants. And guess what? I don’t care! Before you roll your eyes at me just hear me out.

Do you know the last time I went to yoga? Probably about two years ago. Just look at my butt, my hips don’t lie. Do you know the last time I wore yoga pants? I’m wearing them right now.

So, why do I wear my yoga pants you ask? Why do I think every stay at home mom needs some of this goodness in their life? Let me give you a few reasons why.

They are comfortable. Have you ever put on a pair of yoga pants? Well, then you know what I am talking about. I am a stay at home mom, do I have to wear tight fitting blue jeans just to get pooped on every day? My jobs are; a maid, a chef, a chauffeur, and so many other jobs. I think I deserve the right to be comfortable while scrubbing other people’s shit out of my toilet.

I can move in them. Duh, that’s what they are made for. I just use them for It’s nice to be able to bend over to pick up the 100th toy of the day without splitting them up the middle. Have you ever played “horsey” in a pair of jeans or maxi dress? If you have, then you will understand why I wear yoga pants.

Number Two: COFFEE

Yes, this one is a given. Do you need me to elaborate on this one? Without coffee, I am a momster. Do you know how much sleep I got last night? If you are curious please go ahead and read this post.

One morning without coffee and all hell breaks loose. I am talking I CANNOT FUNCTION. Your duties as a mom never end. From the moment you wake up to the moment you fall asleep. And sometimes while you are asleep. When you wake up at six am with the baby and walk into your living room that is filled with toys and clothes and you lay eyes on that sink full of dishes. Trust me, you will want that cup of coffee.

Now, I am not saying you need to drive to your nearest Starbucks and order a $10 triple shot soy macchiato concoction. A $10 coffee pot in your house will do just fine. Besides, I need a cup of coffee before I can operate heavy machinery so even if I were to go to Starbucks every day, I’d still need my coffee at home first.

Number Three: A Hobby

Yes, I hear you. A Hobby? Who has time you a hobby? What am I some sort of magical fairy mom who farts time so I can have a hobby? Okay, calm down. Yes, you have time for a hobby and yes, you need a hobby.

Why? Well, let me tell you. YOU WILL GO ABSOLUTELY BAT SHIT INSANE if you do not find something that is just for you. As a stay at home mom, you dedicate 24 hours a day to your children and your house. That’s 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Sure, maybe at first it doesn’t seem so bad. Then one day you will realize that you have lost yourself. You are a slave to your little minions.

Finding time for a hobby is so important. Important for you and for the safety of your little poop machines. You can find time, I promise. I do not care what the hobby is. If it makes you happy and you do it FOR YOU. Then that’s all you need.

Number Four: Wine

For all of you out there who don’t drink wine or coffee, I don’t know what to tell you. I’m stumped. For the rest of us, trust me, we need wine. Why is wine on this list you ask?


That’s why.

What is the number one thing that you cannot survive motherhood without? Is it on this list?

You are in my head. I am wearing my yoga pants, doing my hobby and drinking wine right now. I also started the day with coffee. Gotta love your priorities.

Haha! I love this! Not just for stay at home mums, all mums should have these! Since squeezing my little one out I have decided that I do actually like (love) coffee. The number one thing I need is a bathroom lock so I can hide in there for 5 minutes of alone time – alone time being Jess banging on the door wanting to watch me pee x
