Re: i envy you all...

  • :) hang in there.

    Either side of the fence has its pro's and con's.

    There are plenty of times I envy/miss being able to go into my office, shut my door and focus on something 100%. Or I miss being able to eat lunch without my toddler's hands in my food or wanting my drink.... or being able to go to the bathroom without an audience. :)

    I definitely consider myself lucky though- and happy with my decision- MOST of the time! :)

    hope it gets easier for you! Hugs.

  • It is wonderful, nothing I'd rather be doing in the long-run and I'm very lucky - BUT... lots of days where I am envious of your position, too.

  • I agree with pp that both situations have pros and cons. I love staying at home with my children and wouldn't trade it for anything BUT there are days that I miss going to work, having adult interaction, peaceful lunches, etc. I am lucky to be able to stay home but I envy your position sometimes too.

    Hang in there. I hope it gets easier for you. Hugs.

  • Thank you to all the ladies that said they sometimes get envious of working moms.  For the most part, I completely enjoy staying home with DD and wouldn't trade it for the world.  However, there are "those days" when I just feel like I'm losing my mind (and myself) and need a break.  Then I feel terrible for having those feelings - like having them makes me ungrateful or means I'm a "bad mom".

    It's good to know that I'm not alone in feeling that way sometimes.
