Last day of work tomorrow!!! So happy

Postby jen0807 » Thu Feb 09, 2012 12:32 pm

I resigned and my last day of work is tomorrow. Nothing compares to being able to care for my lil one myself!

She was being taken care of while i worked full time but after getting pneumonia and scaring the crap out of me, my husband and i decided that i should be a stay at home mom. It's something that ive wanted to do for a long time and he wasnt 100% about it. But after that scare he got on board.
Now we will be cutting corners and budget like no other but it is so worth it.

Happy to be here!

Congratulations--so exciting! I love staying home. It certainly has its challenges, but it's rewarding, too. This forum goes through active and slow periods; hopefully it picks up soon. :)

I am offically a stay at home mom again as of Friday as well!! I'm very excited, I will be picking up some shifts, but it's better than before, I was working full time hours and over time. Hubby will be out of town, so that kind of scares the crap out of me!

Hi! Just wanted to say HOORAY for new and current SAHMs.... it really is THE BEST. I went back to work for 10 months after DS was born and literally HATED every minute of it. My son was in the very best of hands with my mom, but it just wasn't/isn't the same. My last day working was one of the best days of my life. It is an adjustment living on one income - but it was easier than I worried it would be. Now I can't imagine going back!

Don't get me wrong, I have many working mother friends that enjoy it, and I think its wonderful they can "have it all". I just wasn't very good at dividing my time.
