My husband and I got married young, and had our daughter soon after. We decided together that me staying home was the best option. We are against any and all day care (heard way too many horror stories) and our families don't live close because we live on base. (My husband is in the Army) I love being a stay at home mom! There's nothing in the world like getting to watch your child grow and learn every second of every day.
I had a job when I was in high school, but does that really even count? Haha. I miss making my own money though. Fall is coming up and I have a closet full of clothes that are too big due to me losing weight. (Not dieting, just eating healthy and doing YouTube workouts) So with that being said, I'm gonna need some new clothes. I need to go shopping for some new make-up and hair products, just girly things... I JUST WANT TO DO GIRLY THINGS AND FEEL LIKE A HUMAN AGAIN. My husband makes around $10,000 a month, we live in the peach state and we're only 19 and 21, so I'd say we're doing pretty damn good. I HATE having to ask him for anything. In fact, I don't think I've ever asked him for any money besides money for groceries. I need my own money so I don't feel guilty for all of eternity for buying myself a pair of socks with his money. & yeah, I know what you're thinking... "our" money, joint checking, weekly allowance... NO. I don't want to be blamed if something happens on his account and an allowance is just so degrading and STILL HIS MONEY. So that's definitely out.
How do you moms make money without having to spend money? Selling Avon, ItWorks and every other "give me $99 and I'll make you a millionaire" company is NOT for me because NEWS FLASH, they don't work and I don't have $99 to join your team. I don't even have $5. I know selling items like clothes and home decor is an option, but I don't want to have to sell something I love every time I want to go out and buy new earrings. Doing surveys and writing blogs isn't for me. I need a job that I can do on the Mac from home. I have a high school diploma, so whether it's a real job or not, let me know down below. Thank you! & please no rude comments, I don't have time for that shit, I'm an adult. Haha.
