Staying At Home


Contribution by Stevie Kirby

Gosh, it’s hard being a stay at home mom. No one ever told me before I did this how taxing it would be on me both physically and emotionally but I’m trying to get through it one day at a time. It seems like not so long ago I was an attorney trying to build her own practice going to networking events, looking on and calling fresh graduates and here I am nowadays up to my knees in diapers. It’s not that I don’t love my kids, I really do, but sometimes I feel like my brain is just melting into mush. It’s tough not having a lot of adult conversations anymore and I know if I tried to go back to work now all I would think about would be the kids so I feel like I’m kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. I always said I wanted to stay at home but I guess I never realized how hard it would actually be on me when it happened!
