From Working 3 Jobs To Becoming a Stay-At-Home Mom

I’ve spent a decade with a child attached to my breast.

Pre-children I was a super bubbly employee who walked to work with extra peps in my steps.

I was on a mission to spread love and enjoyed getting paid to do it. It was easy and most importantly I helped others in crisis.

Then my children came and the real work began.

Every day, multiple times a day, my children’s wails confirmed I was doing a terrible job. I kept trying and trying new things.

So as a mother who had the physical appearance of a wombman, but no cooking, cleaning, or other domestic skills of any sort, I embarked on a journey of never ending laundry, and rarely looked back.

Honestly speaking — I love it.

I’d choose being woken up in warm pee puddles than a super annoying (and inanimate) alarm clock any day.

Despite the undeserved torture I put my body through over the years, I love that she is healthy enough to produce ample amounts of liquid love (aka breastmilk) for this long.

And while I previously loved rolling out of bed to go to back-to-back shifts and jumping at every opportunity for overtime, I now get to work even harder learning how to create a safe space called home.

In conclusion, there are definitely some things I would never do for a paycheck. Separating from my children during their nursing years is one of them. In fact, the constant hours on my feet in my pre-baby life has nothing on the emotional rollercoaster and stretched nipples of these lactating years.

If you are interested in the stay-at-home life, you're in luck. I've created two calculators that may help you take the leap. They are free and you can check them out here and here. I hope they help!
