Becoming a Stay-at-Home __?__

I cant recall anything in my past that has prepared me for what seems to be happening to me. I am becoming a housewife. This has not been done on purpose, I must add. Four years of college, 3 years of graduate school, 6 years in the marketing field, and I can not land a full time position. With all the extra time on my hands, I have been preparing meals from scratch, learning to grow veggies on an apartment porch, and reusing broken items around the house. I have been quite busy for the past couple of summers.

Now that we have moved  to a different state, I have noticed that my experiences have not been in vain. Many mothers have captured my attention this year as they describe their adventures in raising their children. Some mothers set aside their careers as teachers (often elementary) or other professions to enjoy every moment with their families. Their husband's support is often mentioned in their blogs/postings and to my surprise, they love that their home is filled with love rather than fancy furniture.

So I sat down with my hubby and we discussed what it would mean to be a stay-at-home____ for us. (The blank is there, because now I'm a wife, one day I'll be a mom) I believe that my small family business might actually get off the ground and a new dynamic will arise from this change. My biggest concern is that I won't be able to stop worrying that I am the only one in my friend circle that's going through this. Mr. Mind actual laughs at my concern. My friends are experiencing different changes in their lives and I often if they feel the same.


So tell me moms, professionals, dads, bloggers, writers, and friends. Before I became a _____ I was a ____ and now I wouldn't trade it for the world!

  1. I feel the same way Maruki. I have been married for 3 years and my husband and I are expecting our first child. I keep battling with the thought of staying home. So here goes: Before I became a mom I was an engineer and now I wouldn't trade it for the world!
