Is anyone else torn between working and staying home? I work so that I can provide my son with opportunities that wouldn't be there if I stayed home (ie vacations, summer camp, college savings, etc). However, I don't like going to work or what I do (I'm a tax attorney). I see though that alot of stay home women in my local mother's club don't like being home and prefer not to interact with their kids. I don't have much in common with these women and have not had the best luck in trying to make friends with them. Does anyone else feel torn between these two worlds? Or trapped in one?
I am thinking about changing careers ( I would definately make less money) or being a stay home mom. However, my husband thinks I would be foolish to leave my job. I work 8-4, my boss is nice, I don't have unnecessary stress at work and I make a very good salary. Am I fool?”
