As far back as I can remember I wanted nothing more than to be a stay at home mother. I wanted to stay home and raise my children until they were in school just as my mom had done with me. Now here I am a stay at home mom with a bachelor's degree in...stay at home mothering? Wait, that can't be right. You can't have a degree in that.
Since I've graduated college I've worked in the financial industry and in advertising - both with many complaints from me. I hate financial stuff and rude people and I hate working for people who don't treat employees right (who doesn't). Some people liked to say that I wasn't ever going to be happy with any job; but here I am happier than a camel on Wednesday. I'm so incredibly blessed to be able to do what I truly wanted to do and I'm so grateful for my husband's hard work to accommodate that.
Being a stay at home mom doesn't make a mother any better than the working mother; we're all just trying to navigate through this thing called motherhood. As long as you have a job you love and your kids are happy and healthy, I'd say you're doing okay. Simply put...I love my job.
