I really don't think I am cut out to be a full time SAHM.(stayat home mom)
Don't get me wrong...I totally respect people who are SAHM's. I just don't think I am one of them. I'm really struggling with it right now. So I thought I would put my thoughts down listing pros and cons of being a SAHM from my point of view.
I get to be with my children. I get to be the one influencing them. I get to be there for them
I spend less money.
I can wear junky clothes and no one cares.
I can read books and enjoy nap time quiet.
I can breast feed and not need to pump.
I can cook healthy meals for my family.
I have to be with my children...all day even when they are being frustrating...which has been alot recently.
I have no extra money to spend.
I wear junky clothes and feel frumpy all day long...I'm lucky to get a shower.
I don't get as much accomplished as I should because I have lots of time to do it.
I am the ONLY person who feeds, changes, and does the majority of babycare.
Since there is no extra money there is no extra eating out so I have to cook ALOT.
So I am looking for a job and trying to make the most of life in general. It can be alot sometimes.
