I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Mom Corps YOU. I received a free trial to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Did I ever tell you about my pre-blog life? Do you think I’ve always been a stay at home mom? Nope! I always worked semi-full time (approx 30 hours or so) up until the time we moved south about five and a half years ago. I worked in the real estate industry which was the family business and I really liked my job and was sad to leave it.
Since I’ve lived both sides of the work-outside mom and stay-at-home mom I often think which one is harder. They definitely both have their challenges, but not being home all day meant caring for the house came last. I think that was harest part for me. I was too tired to do dishes and fold laundry. I’m still too tired to do it now so I must have been taking lots of energy supplements then. ha! No really though, you get through the day doing the things you know you need to get done, right?
P’Diddy will be starting Kindergarten in a year and a half. oh my! I’m going to cry buckets that day. I don’t like to think about that, but what I do think about is going back into the workforce. SCARY! After being away for seven years how will I do it? Will anyone want me?
