Let me start by saying that I love my family and my life and wouldn’t change any of it. I love being a military wife and am so proud of my husband for all that he does. Most days are pure chaos, but at the end of the day snuggles with my family makes it all worth it.
I started this post wanting to create a cleaning schedule. Once I got going and started to think of my daily routine it changed into what I like to call “A Day in the Life of a Military Wife and Mom.” I know any stay at home mom can relate but when it comes to being a military wife and mom things get a little more complicated. On top of all of this we constantly worry about our soldiers while they are gone and dread hearing the words “I’m leaving again.”
You can use take this however you want. It really does layout a normal day for me and my cleaning schedule. Some days I get more done and some days I get nothing done but take care of the kids. Experience has taught me that I need to go with the flow. If my house is messy for a day but the kids and my husband are happy and taken care of it’s ok, the mess will be there tomorrow for me to take care of.
