It is tough. You go from working to not working. Most people think you just sit around all day and don't know how you can do it day after day. Working moms judge you because they feel guilty for working and you judge working moms for not staying with their kids. You will feel guilty for not contributing financially to the household. You don't get breaks most days, you feel like the non-mom part of you is gone. HOWEVER, your kids love hanging out with you every day. You get to see their every first. You get to teach them and see how excited they are when they write, all by themselves, the letter A. You get to take random trips to the park. You can get all of the household(ok, some) stuff done so on the weekend you and your hubby can spend quality family time together. It will be the only time that you can enjoy the pureness of your child before the rest of the world makes its mark on them. Make the most of it!
