I need to whine and you ladies are the ones I know best, so I'm going to whine over here. Feel free to ignore it.

I really hate that I can't be a SAHM. I miss my boys so much! It wasn't this hard when Ben was a baby, but Alex is a lot more attached to momma and it kills me to have to leave him for work. Financially SAHM is not an option. No amount of budget crunching in the world would make it possible. And I think that stinks! I keep thinking it will get easier, but it seems to be getting worse. I want to be home and cuddle on my boys. I want to be the one taking Ben to tennis and the library and the park. It makes me sad that I'm missing so much and there's not a d@mn thing I can do about it.

If you stuck with me, thank you. Stupid hormones...

You have every right to feel the way you do, I would too if I were in your shoes.

Hey Kathryn - you aren't alone hun. I cry nearly every day on the way to work & on the way home. I have tried to think & rethink how to make it work some other way - but I can't come up with anything that works. Hang in there hun - I know how you're hurting. Vent to me ANYTIME!
