How do I deal with being a stay at home mom by default

Ravenruck09 - posted on 01/29/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I know I know my title is a bit selfish. I am a 25 year old women with ambition I have a one year old daughter and I love her and I enjoy spending time with her. I would also like to work though and it seems that no one will hire me, Sonya is my first child and entering back into the work force is somewhat difficult but I'm ready. How do I deal with wanting to work but no one is calling? Her father is content with me being home and I'm sure she is as well. But there is something in me that loves the drive of having my own money regardless if her father takes care of us. I'm also in school and thats fun, but is it bad I want more. Is it bad that I don't want to be a stay at home mom. I know everyone doesnt have that option, should I be thankful? I hope I get some responses because I'm really down about this. I dont know how to feel.

Not everyone enjoys being a SAHM. The longest I ever was a SAHM was 18 months and then I was itching to get back to work.
It's not because you have a child that people aren't calling, it's hard to get a job these days.
