I got offered a job today.

I accepted.

Starting in mid-September, I will no longer be a stay at home mom.

I’m happy.



The thought of not being with my kids every day, all day kills me.

This has been my identity for so long.

My reason for being. MY house. MY kids. MY rules. MY routine.

But I know it is for the best. Financially it is a smart move.

But I’m still sad.

So much change in such a short period of time. 



  1. I hear ya. But, also new doors, new opportunities.

  2. Congratulations! What are you going to be doing? I want to hear all about it.

    I'm sorry it is going to be a tough transition for you, though. What will your kids be doing? I sometimes feel like a horrible mother for saying this, but I don't think I could do the SAHM thing. I feel like my kids would get bored with me. Daycare has really been so good for them. But everyone is different.

    Good luck!
