It’s that time of month again. My husband is all packed up and ready to film on location. He is a very busy man and has a lot of work to do. My husband films and directs music videos and commercials and he is often asked to travel to accomplish his work. Baby and I stay home while he travels, or spend this time with my mom. I’ve been around people that don’t understand our dynamic or how he’s able to leave for work so much, and are even more confused because I support him and am used to it.
The constant thing I hear is “Oh, your on single mommy mode!” or “you’re like a single mom.” And although there is nothing wrong with single moms or being a single mom, these statements couldn’t be further from the truth. My husband and I are a team, aside from me being willing, he is a big part of why I am able to stay home, tend to our home and raise our son. My husband quite literally works his ass off to maintain bills and to care for his family and I work mine off raising our son as this is a full time job as well. We each play our position to keep things moving forward in our family unit.
So, I’m sure these people that unknowingly spew these comments, don’t mean any harm, But I just want to set the record straight. My husband is doing a great job at being a provider for his family while allowing me to do my job as a mother, teacher, blogger, momtrepreneur and anything else that comes my way. I 100% fully support him and his endeavors and he does the same for me. Besides, his frequent work trips means Malakai and I can spend a day or two at our favorite place… Disneyland! I know I am not the only one with a hubby who travels for work and maybe this hits home for you, and that’s good! We are women who devote our lives to our families and that should be celebrated, but the men who work hard and allow us to do what we choose should be appreciated and celebrated too! Give your hubby a big, fat open mouth KISS! xoxo
