I never, ever wanted to be a stay-at-home mom. I always thought, how boring. How dull. I’m a career woman, I have interests, I have knowledge outside of “keeping house”.
But I get it now. I hate, hate, HATE leaving my baby to go to work all day. I hate it so much. I love every minute of every day I spend with her. I even go to bed with her at 7:30pm so that I’m ready to get up with her at 6am.
Every day she does something new, and every day we crack each other up. Yesterday she made it across the floor crawling. It was painfully slow, but she got there. Then she puts her little hands out for me to give me hugs. It’s just pure love. I don’t care if I’ve turned into ‘one of those moms’ who only cares about my kid. She’s my world, and I like it that way. I don’t have room for anything else, nor do I have interest in it. I have so much fun just hanging out with her, or bringing her with me to wherever I have to go.
Do any other moms feel this way? Or am I just crazy?
