I love being a Mommy...I REALLY love being a Mommy. I want it to be my full time job (and it is for this year) but the problem is that it doesn't pay. I know women have said this for years, it's just now I am faced with this as my reality and I'm a little frustrated that it's not a paying job. I know people say to make sacrifices, cut back, and whatnot, but to be financially responsible in raising our children and preparing for their future I will most likely have to go back to work next year.
And then there's the fact that I'm not entirely sold on going back to my previous job. I was a teacher and I love teaching, however...that is only a tiny part of the job. If that's all it were I'd go back in a heartbeat. But it's politics, and micromanagement, and uncompensated duties that often end up leaving my own children with the short end of the stick. If anyone has any suggestions for jobs where I can utilize my degree in elementary education or a job where I can work from home, please share.
I'm ready to scratch my eyes out from looking at careerbuilder and monster.

Tell me again why I'm not paid to do this?

I understand exactly how you feel. Somehow I feel like it would be a little easier to stay at home if the job came with a paycheck. Of course I'd be paying myself out of my husband's salary, and while his job is fantastic, we couldn't afford me!ReplyDelete
Boy do I feel your pain.ReplyDelete
I have been a mama for 8 years and only now am Igetting into a decent income working for home -- but it took starting and building my own business, and business is temperamental at best.
Hustle, mama. Ya gotta hustle.
