i am in accounts and no, i don miss my job... i enjoy not working
Oh, and one thing about NOT working - the number of people you know decreases dramatically. After all, the opportunities for networking are a lot less. Do you SAHMs think so too?
And when people ask me "So what do you do?" and I say I'm a stay at home mum, somehow they seem to lose interest in me.
Do you SAHMs experience this?
Hi hi.. I used to work at a foreign bank with a very busy lifestyle.. I'm now a stay home mom for about 2 months.. I married a Philippino. My mother in law is suppose to return after her holiday in philippines but is extending her stay.. I'm suppose to work part time on Accounts when she return but now I'm not sure when she will return.. I find great difficulty adjusting to stay home lifestyle. I feel very unfulfilled and unchallenged.. Part of the reason is that I'm very task and result oriented.. My son is now 13 months and as all of you know, we have to be very relational with our children.. He loves to play but honestly, I dont't enjoy playing that much.. I see many moms enjoying reading to their children but I dont't really enjoy that.. I think it's a personality thingi. I feel so bad that I'm really a bad mom... sign... The reason I chose to quit my well paid job is that I really feel the need to spend more time with my boy.. My job is long hours and I hardly have time with my boy... Even though I'm still struggling with these issues... I never reget quitting my job... I just wish I can enjoy more.. Praying that God will help me each day.. Thankfully, I when for counseling at Focus on the family should helps alot.. Now just taking 1 day at a time..
Bravo! Your Gal is so bless that you are willing to make this sacrifice! We will survive indeed! Take care..hi, I'm 1 week into being stay at home mum..... and still surviving.....
Previously worked in accounts with long hours.... Had pondered on being stay at home mum for a year before I bravely decided on it. ancing_wub:
Have already wasted 7 years, pushing my gal around childcare & student care. Time to take her request seriously, ie - to stay at home.
Thanks Domique! Feel more comforted that someone identify with my struggles.. Thanks for your encouragement..I know that it's just a difficult stage for me right now.. you hit the right spot.. I can't help feeling so disappointed that my son dont't eat at times even after trying to make feeding time fun.. makes me lose my appetite.. Will preserver indeed.. Can't wait for the day my boy say mummy I love you!
