ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Throughout Women’s History Month, KTAB News has highlighted a female surgeon, a business woman, a CEO, and many others, but what about the woman who doesn’t fall into those categories? The woman whose job never ends? The stay-at-home mom?
This is one of those stories.
The hours are 24/7, 365 days a year, and the pay doesn’t come in dollars, but it’s definitely a job.
Meet Robin Davis, a stay-at-home mom.
After teaching for nine years and the birth of her third child, she decided to close that chapter and start a new one focusing solely on raising her kids.
“I felt like I missed out on a lot of stuff with the kids being so little and everything, and they’re only little for a little bit before they have to go to school, so I just wanted to be home with them,” Robin says.
Her day starts at 6:30 in the morning, getting her oldest son Jackson ready for school.
After dropping him off for another day in first grade, she heads back home to take care of her other two babies: 3-year-old Lilly and 19-month-old Andrew.
Her days consist of singing, dancing, making dinner and snacks.
“The crockpot is my best friend,” she says.
And of course as a full-time mom, the job never stops.
“Cleanup mess after mess after mess, and like you just got the dishes done, and then there’s more dishes to do and then I’m never caught up on the laundry, but that’s OK because that’s not the main point of staying home,” she says. “The main point is raising our children, you know, how we think that they should be raised.”
While it’s no easy task taking care of three kids, being there for important moments makes it all worthwhile.
“My favorite thing about my mom is spending time with her,” Jackson says.
And as Jackson puts it best, Robin is nothing short of “Supermom!”
This Supermom also hosts in-home Bible study and helps out at her church during the week.
