So before you go bashing me for being a horrible parent bc I always wanted to be more than just a SAHM, let me explain. I love my kids, don't get me wrong, but I always wondered what it would be like if I had focused on my career first rather than on starting a family. I worked up until my daughter was born 3 yrs ago, and while I love spending time with her, I wish I had gone back to work. I don't really feel rewarded by being a SAHM and I get tired of the same thing day in and day out with no recognition for a job well done, I mean when you are working there are other adults around you, you get raises if you do a good job, etc. Not the case when you are staying at home with your kids.Answer Question

I flipped-flopped my decision on being a SAHM and a working mom. When I was working, I want to be a SAHM, when I was a SAHM, I wanted to be a working mom. Right now, I have the best of both worlds, I work 8-2:30. My son is in school from 7:45-2:45. Have you considered getting a part time job and have your daughter in a 2 or 3 day preschool program? You will still get to spend time with her and you will get to work.

I understand this is why I went back to work and school. I got tired of hearing where are my clean clothes why on the floor or from the SO what did you do today why are there dishes in the sink why is the laundry still outside how late were you in bed? I went back to work also because I needed a life outside of my kids and now they are older I have that!! you need to be fulfilled to give back to your family it only helps!!
