hate being a mom. I do not like the person I have become. I am now at a point where I can go back to work in August and I am just all giddy and happy. Thank God for full day Kindergarten.

I feel ya. I was a sham for four years. I just recently re entered the work field. Its hard, now I have bad social anxiety, from not interacting with people.
Good luck.

I'm sorry you feel that way.

I was home with my kids for 7 years and loved it! I wish they didn't have to grow up so fast.

Just someone that does not resemble who I used to be. I was a single mom who worked full time before meeting my husband. I was damn good at my job and motherhood together. I got pregnant with my twins and worked for a few months after but daycare was outrageous and it made more sense for me to stay home. I did ok in the begining, but now i am tired of it and it shows. I hope that makes sense.
