I'm a 37 year old stay at home mom of three school aged children, 6, 8 and 10. This year I've been subbing at their school. There are hardly ever subbing jobs so most days I stay at home, alone, while the husband and kids are doing their thing. I am so lonely. I want to look into getting a job during the day but we have a long trip we're taking in a few months and I want to wait til after we get back to look around.
The real problem is, the only kind of job I could get would be some crappy part time low paying job, because of child care issues. I am really trying to be grateful to have 3 healthy kids and a sweet supportive husband, but I feel like this is not the life I wanted. Ever since I've had kids I feel like I've lost myself. I guess I just need some encouragement.
