Some times i hear from mothers that I meet at the local parks that they miss going to work. I do and dont. I do miss making that extra money for our household. I dont miss working with alot of women can be chaos! Also, I dont get the luxury of staying home with my SK and bio and cleaning. I stay on top of it. oh yeah and my extra nap

Since you can't miss what you never knew, no. When I moved in with Dh I was 17 and the only paid work I've ever done was babysitting. I somehow always got the parents who didn't pay on time, didn't supply enough diapers or food, were constantly late and one lady had me babysit in her disgusting house. We're talking moldy dishes in the sink and a dead mouse in the kids room. You can believe I quit and called CPS after that. I definitely don't miss that. But I do want to work so I can help contribute toward bills and be able to have money for myself occasionally and not have to ask DH for money for his father's day, birthday and christmas presents. I think it would help me enjoy my time at home more and make me feel like I had a little more value/purpose in my life. Now that Dd has started school I feel like a maid, not even a maid really because I don't get paid. If I had another little one I'd probably feel different but right now it's not at all fulfilling.

I LOVE being with my daughter and knowing what's happening to her every minute of the day. BUT, I miss the time I had to myself commuting to my job, interacting with other adults, or taking off early to shop, do Dr.s appts, or do my nails. Now I have NO time for me. ZERO! I'm currently seeking a job again, but I'm milking the time with my daughter while I have it.

Well i think really the only thing i miss about working is
enter acting with other adult people. And that extra money is very nice thing too! But other than that i don't miss it at
all!!! I guess all has it stresses,but i think it is less if you stay at home with your children. Besides who can take care of your kids better than MOMMEY!!!

Hell no. I guess if I'd actually enjoyed my job it might be different, but about the only thing I miss is sick days.
