I've been doing the SAHM thing since my first was born, and my second is 1.5 years old now. I miss work. We are surviving without the money, but we could definitely use it. This makes me feel like a bad mother (even though I know I am not a bad mother) and selfish. I know there are plenty of people out there who work full time and are exhausted and would love to stay at home. I feel lonely and bored and my kids (even though they are relatively well-behaved) are driving me crazy in large doses. Again, just saying that makes me feel like a terrible mother. So here I am writing to a set of people I don't know for validation or empathy or something.
