You're missing out on a LOT of not great daytime TV. Just think... Maury Povich, Judge Judy, The View, Ellen, Oprah... I mean the list is endless.
Also, bon bons! And 3 martini lunches!!!
shannm:What in terms of DS? Nothing. We have a great bond, he is extremely bright and emotionally and physically healthy. Me, I take some hits. I can't speak for anyone else but for me, 1. A clean house 2. Relaxation - ya know, vegging on the couch with a movie. I try to make time but then I either fall asleep or stress about what I should be doing. 3. Work productivity leading to career advancement. I choose to be home for dinner, bedtime and weekends. Even though dh can't be there, I think the presence of one parent during DS's waking hours is important. This cuts into time at work. I am good at what I do but I could be getting more done. 4) sleep. Edit: Sh!t. Was this a sarcastic not really to be answered question? Did I miss something?
1. Hire a housekeeper! It's surprisngly affordable, and it will change your life.
2. Take a PTO day once a month, and put the kiddo in daycare and just veg all day.
3. No easy answer for this one, LOL. Sorry.
4. Go to bed earlier
Sleep. Sanity. Any hope of ever having a clean house, dishes & laundry done and put away all at the same time.
I don't know. I decided to go to med school instead of going in the Peace Corps. What did I sacrifice?
Every time you make a life decision, you are usually sacrificing something else, and being a working mom vs. at home mom is a huge decision.
During a recent conference I remembered what I was sacrificing by being married. Too bad you can't be unmarried for one day
