Working Mom

Did you ever just want to be a stay at home mom?  Did you ever think when you woke up in the morning to just forget about going back to work.  Is there something holding you back; such as insurance, you need the cash, or you have one of those jobs you went to school and now you have a so called degree?  I am at that point.  I went to a 4 year college for nursing and now that I started a family, I just want to stay home with my daughter.  Yes, I know crazy... You are all wondering why I am thinking this way.  Don't get me wrong, I love what I do, but I just don't want to wake up in the morning and leave my precious Gabby at home. Yes, she is with her father but it just isn't the same.  I want to be the one, spending my time with her.  
One of my friends asked me a couple of weeks ago, "Don't you want to know how it feels to be a working mom?" she also said,  " I get great pride being a working mom."  Glad it is working for you.  I am not sure if that is the kind of life I want for my self and my family.  Everyone always asks me what are we going to do with a less income... I guess we are going to watch our spending.  Sometimes we get asked about insurance... Well, we will just purchase it as an individual plan.  We have done it before and it works.  We might have to get two plans one would be a medical plan and the other a maternity plan.  I am not sure if we will get pregnant again, but we will be covered.  For my degree, I am not sure, that is what is holding me back from quitting my job altogether.  Who knows what our future holds, but I do know that I am excited to find out!

It is such a hard decision to make! The best thing to do is to follow your heart and then try to make it work. I have been both a working mom and a stay at home mom. I enoyed both, and made the best of both situations! Angie xo
