I don't want to be a stay at home mom anymore!

I want to work very part time. Like 10 hours a week. I have many reasons for wanting to get a job......I miss working, I miss having the social aspect that a job brings, I miss getting ready for work, my DD isn't well bonded with DH...she will always come to me when I'm home and I think it would be good for her to get some more alone time with Daddy. My MIL says that I am being selfish. I don't think so. I would still be home with DD all day until DH gets home and then I would go to work. DH is part owner and manager of a C-Store and that is where I would work. Anyways, what do you ladies think? Am I crazy for wanting to work and for missing it?

 You have to do what feels right to you.  It's so few hours a week and if you work when dh is home, then I would go for it.

 No, I don't think you are crazy at all. I think it's normal to have those feelings and if you want to then go for it!!!

I have no desire to work out side the home. This is where I belong.

To each their own. I hate the thought I am going to have to dump my kids in a daycare to go back to work. :-( gives me anxiety attacks for various reasons.

Gosh, by all means, get a job then.  Try to pacify grandma until she warms to the idea.  Not that you have to have her blessing, but if during your work time, hubby needs help, she won't be grumbling about your working.
