Hi ladies! Coming over here from the PG after 35 board, following a break since DD's birth to work on getting my act together, lol! She was born March 5th, and she is a pretty mellow and easy baby so far; we know we are pretty darn lucky.
My question is for any other SAHMs out there. This transition has been harder than I thought it would be... Being a SAHM mom is something that I have always wanted to do, especially given that it took us a while and some work to get DD. I was a team leader at work, used to working 50-60 hours/week plus 5-6 nights of 24 hour call/month. I know that I don't want to go back to that job and I don't really miss it. However, I feel a bit lost now at home. I have gone to a couple of mom/baby ECFE classes, and I should look into a MOPs group. Anybody have any other suggestions for ways to help adjust to this change?? I thought maybe some of my after 35 counterparts may have some better advice, as you are/were more likely to have had a longer career that you gave up (as opposed to our 20 something friends on the other boards). It is OK to just pat me on the head and tell me it will get better, too! I may XP to the SAHM board too, but I though I would start here!
Thanks in advance and looking forward to getting to know you all better (now I'll go do the GTKY poll!).
