Welcome! Being a stay at home mom is SIGNIFICANT AND AN ACCOMPLISHMENT. Bravo to you for being able to do that.
I was a stay at home mom when my older kids were young, then went back to school when my youngest started first grade. It was the hardest thing I've ever done and very tough on my family.
Been a nurse for 5 years and had a baby two years ago (as of yesterday!). I work part-time but really want to stay home full time, as you can see above my avatar.
Another nurse friend and I keep saying if we win the lottery, we are quitting our jobs and staying home with our kids. But first we have to start playing the lottery - funny how that works.
This is a great place to unwind and laugh and ask questions and share "vents".
Good luck with your essay . . . maybe focus on what you brought into your kids lives by being able to be home with them. What have your children taught you?
Best wishes . . . .
