I feel like I am some kind of bum. I feel like I am a little under-appreciated for all the things I do, but I also feel as though it is my job. The worst part is my husband is the supportive one, it is my family that seems to make me feel bad. I worked very hard through my first year of marriage. I worked full time and went to school full time. Then in my last semester of college I got pregnant. I EARNED my degree and it cost me big bucks! I took out student loans to pay for it so I do not understand my parents' urge to tell me that I am wasting my degree by being at home. I can work when my baby is in school right? Why do I let this bother me so much? I also have a brother and sister-in-law that love to take cheap shots at me for being a stay at home Mom. It is awful to want to be accepted so badly by your own family. I hate that I feel bad about myself, when deep down I know I am doing the right thing.
