I am a sahm of 3. My eldest has just started primary school and my middle child will soon be in kindergarten, a family member runs a small buissness and has offered me a part time hostess position, so I will only be working out of the home a few nights a week, its something I need for me, something I can call my own, but I still feel guilty not being with my children during those times! How can I help this?

(((((HUGS))))) I don't know how to ease the guilt, I feel the same way, I just had to go back to work after 2 years at home and it really hurts! I will say it is nice to get some adult interaction and some extra money, but I miss my baby :(

I felt the same way. I needed the respite. You aren't working full time and it's a night job right? I'm sure your kids will adjust fine, mine did.



You shouldn't feel guilty, you are making money for the family AND being a mom.
