From A Full Time Working Mom To Full Time Stay At Home Mom

It was a normal working day when my instinct ask me to quit my happy work profile and be a stay at home mom for my young daughter who is growing up too fast. Though my work was stressful sometimes but the culture of my office was not less than a family to me where everyone supported me wholeheartedly making it possible for me to work and take care of my daughter simultaneously .

Still I took this decision to be more with my daughter and give her some more quality time. These too young years of hers will never come back, and I don't want to regret later for not spending time with her. Life is too short to live with regrets. I know I am little old school type when it comes about my daughter. I did not sacrificed my carrier for her, I don't want to blame her for this decision of mine. It was for my own selfish need of staying with her more and enjoy the life.

But I also knew that this decision of mine will not be easy for me, there were many eyebrows raised many questions asked, many advices given but I followed my heart to completely transform my life. Homemakers life is not easy they are 24*7 with their kids and no breaks.I couldn’t understand the value of a stay-at-home mom until I became one. There is always a lack of recognition for stay at home mom, when we are working the motivation comes in form of appraisals and promotions but for SAHM no such reward system is there and we became the one who are always questioned for any failure in the upbringing of the child. This role is the least recognized role in the society. But not in the eyes of your kids, they love you unconditionally and No monetary compensation can fulfill such feeling.

I am behind my daughter all time, I take her to dance classes, we paint together, we have quiet play dates at home and my calendar is full with cute birthday parties. All mothers are full time working its like only few are salaried. I can and will come back to my professional carrier soon, but I will not be having the power of bringing these growing years of my daughter back where she is happy and most importantly I am happy which is the utmost need for raising a happy child.

A lady is a mother by heart, sitting in office or sitting in home doesn't make difference. Its all about what your heart says. I have sailed in both the boats and trust me no role is easy.

"Cheers to us"
