I have been fortunate enough to be a stay at home mom (or, technically, a work at home mom) since having my son in October 2013. I have always worked part-time and full-time off and on, and because of that, I would be lying if I said I didn’t struggle with a lot of doubts. Am I doing the right thing sacrificing extra income to stay at home with them? I have struggled with a lot of self doubt and feelings of worthlessness because I have not contributed a lot financially. I’ve struggled with loneliness and a lot of stress that comes along with staying at home with two babies (18 months apart) and rarely getting a break. But now I can say I am 100% happy and confident in my decision to be a stay at home mom. How did I get there?
