I have just recently left my long time career to be a SAHM to our daughter who is due June 1, 2012. I am really finding myself struggling to not go back to work. It is what defined me FOREVER and I honestly miss all of my friends and co-workers. I am also finding it hard not having my income. I have never had to stick to a budget, I have not balanced a checkbook in God only knows how long, and I am so used to being spoiled. I still would not have to follow a budget or balance a checkbook on my husbands salary but I would like to still save as much as possible. I guess I am just needing reassurance that this is possible and families all over do this daily and survive and that moms do not lose their identity while being a SAHM. Thank you all!!
