I’ve got a two year old. I’ve been a sahm since she was born, but recently decided that I need to go back to work full time just to get a break from the drudgery of being a Mum. I feel insanely guilty about it but fuck, it is so bloody boring. I’m not having anymore babies. One and done, for sure.
One nearly two year old here and pregnant. SAHM is not for me but I know that nobody will employ a pregnant woman so I'm still looking at a good stretch being trapped at home. I wonder if there's something wrong with me and the way I feel daily.
I don't want to be a SAHP - I honestly couldn't think of anything I would less like to do. Work makes me feel like a person other people want to talk to! There is nothing wrong with that its just how I feel. Some people want to be a SAHP and that suits them.
I got through both my maternity leaves and am glad they are done! Do you have a plan for the future to ensure you are working towards what you want to do? xx
i think it gets a little easier but then harder again in a different way a toddler is a hazard to themself so very stressful an 8yo is very very easy to look after ime however a stroppy 12yo not so much
Each stage has it's own challenges. I'm a single mum to a 12 and 14 year old. That's hard. Sometimes I struggle to keep it together. I just start to think I've got it together and then today I sat at parents evening with my tits out (unintentionally of course - wardrobe malfunction). It's definitely easier when they're more independent though!
Sons are 18 months and 3 years. I think they conspire against me every morning and decide how they're going to wear me down that particular day. They like to club together and get me until I am on my knees and then, just when I'm ready to throw in the towel, they kiss my cheek and stroke my hair and I'm right back in the game.
