"I would like to quit my job!" These are the words I stated to my hubby when he got home the other day. He looked at me smiled and said "too bad, this job is forever!" UGGG!! I wanted to shout.
You see I am a stay at home Mommy to a 19 month beautiful boy/monster, and also to our 2 crazy cats and our Beagle Snoopy who is on too many medications to name. I absolutely cherish my time with my son and our animals and I am very lucky that my husband is able to support us. But let me tell you some days I am so envious of my husband and my mommy friends that get to head off to work. The clothes, the conversations, even the commute I yearn for on occasion but of course the MONEY is what I miss most!!!
I miss having my own money and not having to think twice when I am purchasing something I want and not necessarily need. My hubby is awesome and has never ever complained about my spending but there is definitely something to be said about earning your own money.
The thing I realized is I do have a full time job that I work very hard at and enjoy immensely
(most of the time).
So the lesson I finally learned this week is
My job is just as important and valued as everyone else's and being a Stay at home Mommy is a real money earning job!
