Many women are faced with the dilemma of having a successful career and becoming a stay-at-home mom. I was watching this particular show and the mother had a comment about that very topic. She had made the decision to come home to be with her child and she said she was afraid. She had gotten so adjusted to working professionally and was not sure how she would adjust.

Women who have decided to postpone their career and become stay-at-home moms have found this choice to be very beneficial for the child and mom. Hands-on experience with your child can be a learning process for you both.

The cost will also be expensive if you had a job and you are no longer working. You will be giving up a salary, benefits, retirement and investment options, sick time and promotions for a season. You will be gaining good quality time with your child and will be able to instill some of your core values without the interruptions of other people’s opinions and bad habits.

You will also get the opportunity to share in some of your child’s most memorable and life-changing moments, like: the first word, the first tooth and the first step. Then there is potty training with the terrible twos, the inquisitive threes, and the exploratory fours; “I can do it myself” fives, the “do I have to?” sixes, and “I am all grown up” sevens. Then comes, “why do I have to watch my siblings?” eights, “I’m tired of school” nines, “do I have to go to bed?” tens, “I do not like this or that,” elevens, “I will clean my room” twelve’s, “can I decorate my room?” thirteen’s, “when can I have a sleep over” fourteens, “can I go to the movies with my friends?” fifteen’s, “can I have a sweet sixteen birthday party?” at sixteen. “I’m ready for my driver’s license” seventeen’s, “I am grown and getting ready to graduate” eighteens, “I am ready for college” nineteen’s, “I am looking for a job” twenties;  maybe not in this order. Some place in there," Mommy I think I'm in love!"

This entire cycle can be exhausting, but, very rewarding if you have the proper attitude. Those years will be full of laughter, joy, tears and frowns, failures and successes. These moments will not last forever, just the memories. Children do grow up!
