A few months ago I decided not to work after this school year ended. It was a hard decision because I really do enjoy my work, but the money I would bring home after day care expenses isn't worth It. Im pretty worried about not working and not having extra funds when needed. I have been researching different ways to save money and still live without worrying too much! I'm going to share with you all soon how I'm going to handle the finances now because you know this mama likes to shop!
I realize this decision isn't for everyone. Being a working mom and a stay at home mom both have their own challenges. Most of the time I would prefer to work but with having two kids day care costs would be pretty expensive and I have been having a hard enough time getting to work on time with one crazy kid. A lot of people say that they would go crazy staying at home, but really i'm already at least half way to the looney bin. Plus i have other plans to keep me sane:
In January I'm going back to school so i can make mo' money when I do go back to work.
I'm going to be working out/running/lifting like its my job about 4-6 weeks after I pop this little one out. This mama is getting her booty back quick y'all. ;)
|I can't wait to snuggle one of these again!|
So now I need advice from those who are or have been stay at home mamas. How did you keep your sanity? Also, how do I entertain my almost 3 year old while taking care of a baby? I'm sensing some huge tantrums in my near future when my big man isn't getting all the attention (and from my son too lol)!
