Welcome to my blog, Reluctant Stay at Home Mom (SAHM).
My name is Margaret, and I am a Reluctant SAHM from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I consider myself a Reluctant SAHM because I never intended to become a SAHM. Instead, it was just something that happened after a job loss and having two babies back-to-back.
I know I am not the only reluctant SAHM out there. There are probably thousands of other mothers just like me, trying to decide what is the best choice for their family. Sometimes I love SAHM life, and on other days, it (and my kids) drives me crazy.
This blog is not about perfect parenting. (Does that even exist?)
Instead, this blog is about my journey as a Reluctant SAHM, and all the joys and frustrations that go along with it.
The life of a new mother is hard, which is something you never quite grasp until you become a mom yourself. I plan to share lots of advice (learned the hard way) humor, reviews, and more, to help other mothers along the way.

My husband’s name is Shane, and we were married in 2014. He already had a daughter, so I immediately became a stepmom to my “bonus daughter.”
Then, my son was born in 2015 and my daughter was born in 2016. I am the proud mother of Irish twins (children born less than 1 year apart). My daughter was born when my son was 11 months old.
One thing is for certain, with 2 toddlers and a 9-year old stepdaughter, life is never boring.
