I am a working mom. That is my reality right now for a number of reasons, but I will admit that there are times when I am a wee bit jealous of those stay-at-home moms. The ones with their etsy stores. The ones who get to spend lots of quality time with their little ones doing things like taking naps together on the couch but also have a hobby that brings them some fulfillment outside of mothering.
However, I think it would be dangerous for me to stay at home with Cara full time though. Granted, the laundry would be done, we wouldn't be paying for a maid twice a month, and Cara would have an entirely handmade wardrobe, but a few very bad things are likely to occur:
1. I would gain 50 pounds. At work, I can't just open the fridge and grab something. I am busy, busy, busy, and food is not readily available. At home, it's another story. One that would have a very fat ending.
2. I would never get dressed. I suspect that I will still be in my pajamas when PJ gets home from work tonight. In fact, I will probably take a shower tonight and put on more pajamas. And if I am still snowed in tomorrow, it will probably be the same thing all over again.
3. I would be crazy. Because I cannot read "Elmo's 12 Days of Christmas" even one more time.
