I have just recently started working. As a stay at home mom for 5 years, I loved every bit of it. I did at times find myself wishing I had a workplace, but that wish would go away as I had the freedom to do everything with my kids. I would plan so many activities and also have time to clean the house and have dinner ready on time.
Now as I have started working, I find myself wishing for my freedom again. Dinner is not always ready on time, and there's not as much time for all those planned activities with my kids anymore. They are in school now and I do look forward to picking them up everyday and hearing the stories about their day. I look forward to coming home and cleaning up quickly so I can help my daughter with her homework, and then play a couple of board games with her. I look forward to coming home to build train tracks with my son (his favorite activity). I look forward to bedtime stories and snuggles with my kids and then some relaxing winding down time, and snuggling with my husband.
