These past four months have been quite an adjustment for me, one that I think I’m still going through. I never thought that I would be a stay-at-home mom. I’ve always been a very goal- and career-oriented person (not that people who want to be SAHMs aren’t! I just always thought I’d be a working mom). I ended up being a SAHM out of necessity. Since I wasn’t already in a position of full-time work before I got pregnant with C, I discovered that in the area we live I would need to start in an entry-level position anywhere I applied. Those positions would barely pay enough to offset the cost of daycare. Between missing out on so much time with my son and the cost of daycare, Hubster and I decided that the small amount of take-home pay that I would receive wasn’t worth the hassle.
