Is it hard to work the computer with your hand raised???
I was in your place too… 14 months and 16 days ago! That is the age of my second child by the way… The day I left that place to bring her into this world and start my new career as a stay at home mom.. was one of the best days of my life.
I have been on both sides of the fence my friends. I worked the first two years of Rylee’s life (my first daughter). I remember the Sunday evening meltdowns I would have.. tucking her into bed and wishing I could figure out how to stay at home! I remember receiving pictures from my mom who watched her all day for me… pictures of her doing and learning new things and wishing I was there in person to see it!!! I remember how the weekends and holidays went by way too fast and the work week went by way too slow.
Were we “ready” financially for me to take the plunge into the SAHW (stay at home world) when Karly was born? No.. probably not. You know why? No one is ever “ready”.. unless they are rich! Just like you can never prepare yourself for having children in the first place. You just have to take the plunge and learn as you go.
So after 14 months and 16 days of living and learning how to balance the Stay At Home World.. and embracing the awesome title of Stay At Home Mom… I decided to start my own website to write about the day to day triumphs and struggles… along with plenty of helpful hints and how tos… and a huge variety of other knowledge I have gained and continue to learn as I go along. I know it is not for everyone.. some women need the career- need to climb the corporate ladder. Some are like me.. they just need their kids within arms reach so they don’t go insane with the sadness and guilt that many working moms deal with daily! I remember once upon a time, thinking how impossible that dream seemed. Guess what? It isn’t!
