I've been a stay-at-home mom for 3 years now. It's been great spending time with the kids and having time to do things around the house that I didn't have time to do when I was working. I have a bachelor's degree and have worked in some high stress positions, but three years ago I became very ill and had to go through 2 surgeries within 1 month. I had my gallbladder removed and 2 kidney stones extracted. At that time my husband and I decided that it was best if I stay home and recover for a while.
I have a 4 year old and a nine year old girl. They keep me very busy, but lately it feels like everyone in the house is ignoring me when I talk, that includes my husband. I feel like because I don't have work topics anymore that what I have to say is not important enough for him to listen. I think my kids are seeing this and deciding they don't need to listen to me either. It's becoming very frustrating.
