Anyone else having an internal war with themselves over being a stay at home mom vs working?
I absolutely LOVE staying home with my 5 month old daughter, but at the same time I feel like I am not contributing enough to our family. Even more so, I feel like those around me think that too. With that said though, the thought of going back to work full time makes my stomach turn.
Ideally, I would love a part time position, but unfortunately in my field of work part time is very slow to come by. I've thought about volunteering my time to feel a sense of "worth", but what do I do with the baby? I can't afford to send her to a babysitter for a volunteer position.
If you are a stay at home mom, do you ever feel this sense that you are not doing all that you should be doing? How do you overcome it?
