I love being a stay at home mom!
I love being a stay at home mom! I have four children that are all school age and have been expected to go back to work when they started school. I worked as a special ed para in the schools for two years, but it was so hard. If I put all of my energies into work, then I had nothing left for my kids. I hated having to take off when someone was sick or had an appointment (which is often, we have kids with allergies and asthma). I wanted to be more involved in the kids schools and know what was going on better than I did. I never felt like anything was caught up and I never had time for myself. So, when we moved to a new town I decided to not go back to work. I have tried subbing in the schools, but it is very hard for me to go to work at a moments notice and I don't like telling other people's children to sit down and be quiet every two minutes. I am keeping a new born baby three days a week to subliment our income and trying to bargain shop as much as possible. I want to try to show everyone that you can stay at home if it is your heart's desire.
