how did that happen? Life has this funny way of catching up to you. G turned 2 on Dec 22. My severance and benefits ended on December 25 - nice Christmas present! That marks 2 years and one month that I've been a stay-at-home mom. Never really pictured this for myself, and after spending most of the last year feeling guilty about not looking for work, then feeling guilty about thinking about being away from my kids - I think one of my resolutions for the new year is not to think so much! Alas, such is the lot in life for the mother ; guilt, guilt and more guilt.
I mentioned to L that I might start working a bit this year - he got very upset, told me he hates daycare. So this just moves me more firmly into the work at home scenario. The thing about it is that it's intimidating. Having always had a full time job, 9 - 5, full benefits etc. etc., it's a bit nerve wracking to think about going it on my own. Don't know why I'm so nervous, we do have the safety net of Ian's career. But I know even though he says he doesn't think about it, there is more pressure on him now that we've only got his one income. Especially with my spending habits!
