Married to DH since 2006. Adoptive mom to DD1 (June 2002), DS (Jan 2006), and bio mom to DD2 (May 2009).
I'm scared and excited at the same time--I have six months of work left before we move and I get to SAH FT w/DD1 (she'll be 2.5 yrs.). I was off for three months after her birth, and it was really hard on me, so I'm wondering if there's a "trick" to staying home that I missed during that time. She was colicky, never slept, had GI issues...plus she is my first baby and I was afraid to leave the house with her, much less grocery shop alone.
So is there anything I should be doing to "prepare" for a year or more at home? DH has suggested putting DD in a very part-time pre-school type program so that I get some "me time"....
Is there anything you wish you knew or did before leaving work to SAH?
I'm so I can hardly contain myself!
Texmati-- Knitter, Hindu, vegetarian, WOHM. Wife to superdad and mom to DS 24 months, and DD 8 months! .
