working moms on mat leaves
Posted 02 November 2010 - 08:51 AM
I must say staying home is not my thing. I love being with my kids, immensely, but I find I can get more accomplished at home when I work full time. Maybe its because all day long at home consists of cooking meals cleaning the kitchen and then repeat. I do get out often to play places, parks, walks etc. But that is sometimes hard when I don't get a good nights sleep. I am up sometimes 6 or more times! Baby is nursing and wants to cosleep but that is getting to be hard on me, especially when other 2 kids crawl into bed with me. I guess I'm just ranting and hope that I'm not alone in saying staying at home is really tough.

Part of the biggest reason for me is the 1st year - newborn stage is not my most favourite. The first 6 months were a struggle to find my way and I was very anxious to get back but just as my mat leave was about to end my kids were so dam cute and fun to be around that I dreaded heading back..
