Mommy Confessions #4


It's that time again, time to confess something that's weighing on my mind.

I confess...I really don't want to go to work when my son starts school this year. Hubby wants me to start working more this summer, since his schedule would allow me to pick up extra hours, and he hopes I will find a full time job in the fall.

I don't. I want to be at home to send my son off to school. I want to be waiting when he comes home. What if he's sick and needs to stay home? What if he has something special at school and wants me to come? What if he just needs me?

I want to be there.

My thoughts are, if we can afford it, why not? I have never been the get out there and get ahead kind of girl. I'm perfectly content to be mom. I would so much rather be at home than sitting in an office somewhere.

Are you confessing anything this week?

Wow, those are my sentiments exactly. I've still got a few years before we have to make a definite decision.

I hear you. my husband says the same thing...my youngest is 14 months old. but i rather be available to the schools.

I know how you feel.

I feel you. We are going through something similar. Something about the thought of leaving the kiddos everyday tears me up. Even though they drive me insane sometimes:)

I must confess, I will be sleeping in all weekend long. Then go to SC and sleep some more.

I hear you! I love staying at home during the week and I am so glad that I only work outside the home on the weekends. One of the reasons for starting my own business is the hope that I can be successful from home and not have to work outside the home at all one day.

I agree 100%. I was talking to a lady that runs the childcare that most of my family has their children in. I told her that I may go back to work in a few years, she said, if you can afford it, you should stay home. She pointed out that sometimes it is more important to stay at home when your kids are older, to keep an eye on them.

I have no idea what I am going to do when my girls go to school...but I probably won't be going to work at least not full time and I probably won't be working outside of the house. If you don't really want to then talk with your hubby about it!

I confess that before I had a child I had no opinion. Now, my opinion shifts between needs and wants, depending on the day. Having been a stay at home mom for the past 3ish years, I've become accustomed to it, and although I'd really love to work and get some time away from the little guy, I confess I'm lazy and prefer this now. (I'd also prefer to continue as a single mom, but that's another story for another day.)

Happy weekend! =)
