I'm a SAHM and have a beautiful 15 month old son. I'm so grateful we have him.
But I do miss my life before we had him.
Can anyone else relate?
I miss the freedom of being able to go out to the movies, shopping, etc at the drop of a hat.
I miss being able to eat out in restaurants and linger over brunch with bottomless cups of coffee and a book.
I miss being able to sleep in and take long afternoon naps (rather than being abruptly woken up after a short catnap).
I miss the friendships I had with my other single and/or childless friends, many of whom I have not seem for a long while.
I miss having my own interests and hobbies, having time and energy to do them.
And I feel so guilty for feeling this way. I remind myself that I wanted to have a baby for a long time, and once upon a time my biggest fear was not being able to have kids.
I just really needed to express myself and I'd love to hear from other mamas who have experienced the same.
