If you are reading this, my title already grabbed your attention. Which I think is a beautiful thing. Let me explain why you should continue to keep reading. I am a mom of one and my child is currently deep into the midst of the infamous Terrible TWOS. I went back to work from maternity leave in March of 2017 when my daughter Riley was three months old. If you asked me I would have loved the opportunity to spend more time with her in her infancy stage. Now that she is two, I find myself saying this regularly and through every stage she goes through as she continues to learn and grow.
I currently work in sales and lets be honest it takes up a lot of my time that I would rather be spending with my family. Or at home cleaning, or grocery shopping. Not that I am a huge fan of either of those things and I don’t know if you are anything like me? It’s just most days I feel like there isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done. I mean between drop offs, pick ups, traveling to work, grocery shopping, cleaning, laundry, cooking, teaching, correcting behavior, potty training, play dates, dance, seasonal swim lessons, and much more of the daily mom things I’m forgetting right now. Add on forty plus hours a week working and one hour commute each way. WHEW! I almost got winded typing all of that. After I became a mom A LOT of things changed and were put into perspective for me and I find myself wanting different things.
I often find myself thinking, what if I didn’t have to go to work? What could I do for work as a stay at home mom? What could I do to have more freedom to spend time with my child? Or even thinking that I could be more successful as a mom and a partner if I could be a stay at home mom. I could have more time to do the things things that need to get done with less stress.
Now that I have given you a little history let me explain what brought you here in the first place. You want to know the inside scoop on why I started my blog?
