The working Moms?
How did you do it? If you are a working mom I tip my hat to you. I tried two different times to get a job and work and I just cant seem to last very long. When I leave my house all I think about is my son, and all the things I could be doing at home with him. Teaching him new things and him teaching me new things. I just cant seem to get past leaving him for hours at a time to deal with people I don't even like. How did you do it? Or haven't you been able to either?!
Now.. ask me this come March.. hehe
And I'm going to be SAHM - the work is only work, and the kids are the sence of life.
I cant imagine me working while my kids are making first steps...
So Brittney, I'm on your boat!
My oldest is 4 now and I now have a 6 mo old. I took off on early maternity leave 7 weeks before my second was due and because of the cost of daycare I have not gone back to work. I have been loving getting to hang out with my kiddos but I hate the isolation that I feel. I am going back to work next week. I am excited to be getting out of the house, getting adult interaction, and getting to let someone else take care of my oldest for a few hours a day. I know it sounds bad to say it that way. I am excited that she will get to interact with other people without mom and dad being there. Initially they will be with a mom whose children are grown and out of the house. Her husband may be around occasionally also. Another mother with two of her own is starting a home day care and when she is able to get up and going my two will be going there so they will have other children of variant ages to interact with. I look at it as a chance for them to learn from and teach other children and a chance for them to create friendships with other children. It is also a chance for me to socialize with other adults and create friendships for myself and get good exercise and some income in the process.
