Personal Narrative: My Stay At Home Mom

Improved Essays
I gained most of my weight when I was in my mid to late 20’s. During that time I was a stay at home Mom. The most I had to do was take care of the children, run errands and do household chores. Often times, I’d get finished with my to do list, early. The challenge that I had, was keeping myself from getting bored, after I’d completed everything. I’d spend most of the time watching television with the children, or I’d have an activity planned for us to do. When I ran out of things to do, I’d snack on treats to help past the time away. It wasn’t long before snacking became a hobby. Every time I wanted a snack, I’d eat one. I did most of my snacking while the children were taking a nap. Every time the children woke up from their nap, I’d give them a snack. Although they woke up at different times, whenever one of them woke …show more content…
I started her out with something I knew she’d have plenty of fun with. Our first lesson was baking cookies. She was excited to learn how to bake cookies.
Everyone enjoyed the smell of the cookies baking. We talked about how we couldn’t wait to taste the cookies.
Once the cookies were done baking, everyone enjoyed eating the cookies. Patria did a great job baking the cookies. I heard the children talking about how they hoped that I’d let her bake some more cookies. She asked if she could bake some cookies the next day. I told her that everyone would be glad if she baked some more cookies. The smells in the air from the cookies baking, always caused us to start a conversation about the cookies. After the cookies were done, we enjoyed the cookies with milk, with ice cream or with peanut butter. She baked cookies for about four or five more days, before she began losing interest in baking. I was surprised because I didn’t expect here to get bored with baking so cookies so quickly. She told me that she wanted to learn how to bake something

    Coming from a Mexican family and being a female is a bit difficult. It is difficult when you have family that is waiting for you to “grow up” to become a mother. Some family members belief this is still a norm for a female to get married, have children, and stay home to take care of the family. Just because some of the women in my family became mothers at a young age, I did not want to become a mother, at least not yet. On (Not) Getting By in America by Barbara Ehrenreich, she wrote “Happily, though, my fears turn out to be entirely unwarranted: during a month of poverty and toil, no one recognizes my face or my name, which goes unnoticed and for the most part unuttered.…

I struggled) and with some guidance of my mother, a batch of cookies popped out of the oven. I was scared at first to let anybody try them because they looked quite horrid, but as soon as the first daredevil, my older brother, tried this twelve-year-old’s cookies he immediately smiled, shoved the remaining cookie into his mouth, and grabbed another two.…

    The stimulus activity that I chose to do was making valentine sugar cookies with two of my nieces. I originally was only going to do this with my seven year old niece Eliza, but decided to let her younger sister, Lucy who is five, also join us. Overall, the stimulus activity of making and frosting sugar cookies went great. I didn’t think they would be as open as they had been because they are both really shy and usually only talk to the other kids. However, they were both engaged and enjoyed it because they had been able to frost cookies before but had never had the opportunity to help mix the batter, cut them out, and bake them before.…
