I have been contemplating for a long time quitting my job and being a full-time stay at home mommy. I feel like it would be easier for me not to have the stress of the part-time job I have. Stay-at-home-mommas – I am NOT saying that staying at home is easier than working. I’m saying that it would make MY life simpler.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my job – most parts of it. I love coaching the girls, I love helping them improve, and I love it when they leave the program in a positive way. I love taking them to competitions, and I absolutely adore my assistant coach (I would have left already if she wasn’t in this with me).
But……. I hate the stress. And the drama. And I keep thinking, this complaining isn’t worth me taking so much time away from my child and husband.
I would have so much more time to do things for me, more crafts, more sewing, maybe take a dance class for myself.
I feel lucky that we don’t need the money (because it’s basically like a volunteer position). I do worry that I may get bored (ha, with a one-year-old?!) or regret my decision or miss it a lot.
I’m so conflicted between liking the majority of my job and being sick of the nonsense. I keep bouncing back and forth about staying or going.
What are your thoughts working and stay at home mommas? I know the grass is always greener, but I do value your opinions. What do you think?
