For those of you that work outside the home, how do you feel about transitioning to being a SAHM for maternity leave?! (or longer!)
I'm noticing I am getting really emotional about this because I have enjoyed being a working mother for over a year now. I was a SAHM for DS for 2 years and it was the most rewarding but hardest thing I have ever done. I don't mean this to sound bad but working outside the home makes me feel like I'm myself, not just a mom. I get to do my makeup every morning. I have time to get nails done and when I do spend time with my DS in the evenings and weekends, I'm not so stressed and we have fun together. I am not sure how soon I will go back to work if at all because 2 kids in daycare for what I make is unreasonable, but yet I have to think about my sanity. I am not sure how I will feel about wanting to go back to work or staying at home. Only time will tell, but I am just afraid I will turn into the SAHM that doesn't get dressed and gets depressed and yells at her kids. KWIM?
