If you have been following along with my posts you will know that last week was my first run in with being a Stay At Home Mom. Catch up on last weeks post here: Welcome To The Stay At Home Mom Experiment Behind the Scenes. For a full week my 19 month old baby Morgan was on summer vacation. When she was 6 months old she started attending day care full time, and since then besides the occasional holiday I have not had the chance to stay home with her on a long term basis. This was a experiment for the both of us.
I absolutely love my career, but I have considered being a stay at home mom a few times since Morgan was born. That feeling increased even more when I became pregnant with my second. I am currently 6 months along. However living in Los Angeles that is virtually an impossible task unless a lottery win is in my future.
I knew that this week would not give me the perspective that real stay at home mom’s have since it was only for a week and I knew that I would return to my lovely corporate job very soon. However it did give me perspective into how hard, amazing, stressful and rewarding the task of being a stay at home mom really is.
I made sure that at the end of each day I reflected on the good and the bad that I experienced. Here is my break down, Monday – Friday, day by day! The Stay At Home Mom Experiment – The Aftermath.
