HI Ladies -- I was formally JuleeSmith and now I am JuleeSmith 2 -- I was recently laid off from work -- job elimination my butt -- and all of my information for just mommies was on my work computer so I had to make a new profile -- I have one daughter names Ella and she is 2.5 yrs old and I am due October 15th.
I am going to be a SAHM for a while -- and would love some advice on how some of you ladies do it!!! I am looking forward to enjoying the spring and summer with my daughter and spending some 1-1 time with her before the new baby is here!
being laid off sucks -- but it's happening everywhere -- the only thing i can hope is that i get called back to work once the market starts to settle --
i look forward to chatting with you ladies and hearing about everyone's progress!!
back! I'm sorry to hear about your job. My dh just found out that at the end of this month his entire line is eliminated and he's also out of a job. When we decided to NTNP he was working tons of overtime - it happened so fast!
I am currently a SAHM (for the last 9 months). I actually really like it but I was raised by a SAHM and always wanted to be one.
My advice is to make a basic schedule (just like work). I found I got a lot more done and I was more likely to be dressed and looking presentable (and feel normal) if I had a regular routine. And also make sure to make lots of time for yourself, it can easily turn into a 24/7 job with no breaks if you let it. Make sure to get a babysitter or have your SO watch the little ones and go get your hair done, get a pedicure, or even run errands. And also make time for some "adult" time whether it's with your SO or your girlfriends. Build it into your schedule because for me it's easy to feel like I've forgotten what adult companionship is like and when I make time for some adults I feel SO refreshed.
