okay, so let me start by saying i am blessed to be a stay at home mom. it is a blessing. i would not trade it for anything else in the world.
in fact, today i realized just what a blessing it is to serve my family daily. i was able to help both my husband and burrito while in school today...something i would not be able to do if i were working. i felt a little like superwoman! ;)
on my way to school to drop off and pick up burrito everyday, i pass a spa/manicure/pedicure place. i can count on one hand how many times i've been to such an establishment. i'm not super girly so i don't feel i am missing out too much, but there are days when a nice manicure and pedicure sounds better than chocolate.
and this particular establishment has a sign outside that says "20% discount for students and teachers." i was a student, and i remember how financially challenging that time can be. i am married to a teacher and believe me, i know they are underpaid. but every time i pass that sign, i wonder,
"why doesn't anyone ever offer a stay at home mom discount?"
seriously. now i realize in order to get the teacher or student discount, an i.d. is required. but i think i have sufficient identification....clothes that i've had since high school, a preschooler tagging close behind me and very little money in my wallet. if anyone needs a manicure or pedicure or any type of special treatment it's a stay at home mom!
so, may i have a discount please? anyone?
and all you stay at home moms reading this, are you with me? can you relate? wouldn't it be nice to get a discount?
