Stay at home mom

I recently quit my job to stay at home with my babies and I have to be honest it hasn’t been easy. I’ve been working since I was 15 and I’m used to having my own income. Plus, it was a job I really loved. Now I depend on my husband’s income, even though we have everything joint, it’s still a change. I have to budget. Before I could go shopping and know that it was ok because my income was just extra. Now I have to be careful of what I spend. I have also been adjusting to the home life. Sometimes it gets depressing, not going anywhere for days besides taking & picking up my son from school. The days seem to be flying by literally and I feel like I can’t get a handle on things. Some days I get so much done then other days I can’t get anything done. I’m definitely still learning how to be a good stay at home mom and my husband is beyond understanding. What I do know for sure is that no amount of money is worth missing my kids milestones. I absolutely love being able to raise my kids, see the new things they do every day & be available to do things during the day which I didn’t have time before. I can take the kids to the doctors, therapy, attend parent teacher conferences and not have to worry if I have enough pto to take off work. I definitely don’t regret quitting my job. I think about the future and I want no regrets so I chose to raise my babies instead. I know not everyone has this option, but if it’s possible for you and your family, trust me, you won’t regret it. Much love,

  1. You’re right! Being a mom is tough, nonetheless a stay-at-home mom. Kudos to you for quitting your job, being able to is a blessing. I have learned from being a working mom, to a stay-at-home mom that there are never enough hours in the day! My to-do list is ongoing but it always will be. Sometimes we’re too hard on ourselves 🙂
