This time last year I remember feeling overwhelmed. Sadie had just turned one year old, Hudson was 3 and a half, and I found out I was pregnant with baby #3. It was a lot to take in. Being a mom of three is a huge responsibility…and I didn’t know if I was ready. But you know what? You are NEVER ready. There is never a perfect time….but everything happens in it’s perfect time. And today? I wouldn’t change a thing. I LOVE having three kids. Yes, it’s crazy. And yes, I’m frequently overwhelmed. But man, it’s amazing.
I’m a stay at home mom…..but that doesn’t mean I don’t work. I work ALL DAY and often ALL NIGHT long taking care of my three sweet kids and our house. I’ve never worked so hard in my entire life. And I’ve never had a “job” that I love as much as I love being a mom. Some days you might find me crying in the bathroom while eating chocolate. And some days my face hurts from smiling so much. It’s just the nature of the job. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. So when you think about my contribution to our household as a stay at home mom, it’s huge. Not to brag or anything. But it’s true. It doesn’t matter if daddy is standing right there and is perfectly capable of helping a 2 year old put on her socks….it’s always “No, Mommy do it!” Mommy does it all. If there was a popularity contest in my house today I would win with an unanimous vote. I don’t think I’ve been able to say that with such certainty ever in my life until now.
And I love being everything for my kids. My kids are my whole world. And for now, I am their whole world too. It won’t last forever. But I want to savor it while I can. Now that I’m a mom, I’m all too aware of these precious gifts I have been given. I want to make sure they are taken care of.
As a mom, I can’t help but worry. It’s part of my job. I knew going in to motherhood that I would worry about my children getting sick or injured. Or getting their feelings hurt. I knew I would worry if we are making the right choices when it comes to raising them to be kind and loving kids. But I didn’t think about what might happen if I wasn’t around to be there for them. What would happen to my sweet babies if, heaven forbid, I died?
Do you have life insurance? It’s scary to think about what might happen if you were no longer around. But it’s even worse to think about what might happen if you don’t have a backup plan. Life insurance is part of that backup plan.
I recently learned about a term life insurance policy that can be purchased entirely online, through Haven Life. They are a modern life insurance startup, backed by MassMutual, that has made buying affordable coverage easier than ever. I got an estimate for coverage pricing without speaking to a single soul.
Haven Life offers honest, easy, and affordable life insurance coverage for moms just like me. My contribution as a stay at home mom is huge in our family….and if something happened to me, I need to know that my family would be taken care of. Life insurance gives me that peace of mind and I sleep easier knowing my loved ones are protected…..that is, as long as my kids actually let me sleep!

Being a mother is an important and challenging job and you do it quite well. Every day I have at least one moment where I just wonder how you do it! Your children are precious and so blessed to have a mother who loves and cares so much for them. I just hope in those moments when you are hiding in the bathroom crying and eating chocolate that you can feel how special you are and how much those littles love you.
