Once upon a time there was a working mom.
Her busy days were full of committees, meetings, teaching, making lesson plans, grading papers, running errands, all with her daily planner within arm's reach.
She counted down the days until summer vacation.
And then summer came and she became a temporary stay-at-home-mom.
And quickly realized why she works.
Now her days are full of laundry, cooking, cleaning, whining, yelling, settling arguments, and running errands much more slowly with the added help of 2 kids.
She loves her children very much.
But she also loves working very much.
She is torn between wanting summers off with her children and longing for the busy days of feeling accomplished and successful.
For now, she will settle into the SAHM role and will get the hang of it.
Right around the time school starts up again.
