…because I don’t want to see the look/hear about how hard it is to be home when all I want is to be home with every ounce of all I have inside of me.
…because I don’t want to go back to work full-time. Money is not my number one priority anymore. But if I don’t, I don’t know if we can afford to buy a new, bigger house to expand our family. And I don’t want something of this magnitude to fall on me, and 10 hours of work per week.
…because this house is already too small, but I try to ignore that fact and just do the best we can with our little space.
…because if/when I do go back to work full-time I know, know KNOW I am not going to be happy, at least in that sphere of my life.
…because some things aren’t discussions.
…because this little house is a MESS. And I don’t have the time/energy/desire to clean it.
…because I don’t think I am being a great wife right now. And I don’t really care.
…because I don’t think anything should interfere with being a Mom. I just don’t. And unfortunately, everything does.
