I consider myself very blessed to be a stay at home mom (SAHM) and if I had to do it again, I would undoubtedly make the exact same choice. However, I was a bit delusional on what it means to be a SAHM.
Both Jackson and Mickey will be in school this year and the consistent question people ask is "What Am I Going To Do?" My number one priority will always be my husband and children, but this question feels like another sign that my identity is solely based on being a mother and wife and any other identity is lost. This is my perspective and my story. I am only speaking for myself.
