I want to be a stay at home mommy :(

I always considered myself a pretty strong independent woman. I have a college degree, I'm working on my Masters degree, I have a great job that I make ok money at. I enjoy having a job because I know that no matter what happens I can take care of myself. I don't NEED a man to take care of me. If I had lived in the 1960's I would have been burning my bra right along with all the other feminists.

Now, all I want is to be a stay at home mom. I would be perfectly happy staying home, cleaning, and having dinner on the table when Christopher gets home from work. I would even wear an apron. Or pearls like June Cleaver.

Do you SEE this cute baby? I have to leave him for 9 hours a day while Nana and Christopher get to stay home and play with him. OK, he is in GREAT hands with Nana and Christopher, but I want him in MY hands. Now, I'm going to be an outsider- listening to others tell me about MY baby!

Will he even remember me? This little smile you see on his face was for ME. He smiled right at me when I started talking to him, so I quickly snapped his picture... He is only going to be this little once, and I'm gonna miss it :(

I know the feminists just wanted equal pay for equal work, and wanted women to be able to work if they wanted- but what has happened is families HAVE to have two incomes to survive... I don't think they intended moms to have to leave their babies!
