Transitioning from a working mom to a stay-at-home mom

Are you planning on making that big jump from a working mom to a stay-at-home mom? I can only imagine how you may feel. It can be a mixture of emotions if you are to ask me about my opinion of both worlds.

Sometimes as we transition through life, our priorities about family and work may change, which was the case for me. I worked as a Pharmacist in a very demanding career that took a lot more of my time away from my family.

Even though I had a career and was where I wanted to be initially, it didn't feel the same anymore after I had children. I was missing being involved a lot more in the most integral parts of their lives.

I didn't have the "cushiony" 9 to 5 working hours, most moms seek. It was more of the midnight shift. I was not able to take care of my children as I would have preferred and it took a toll on me mentally, emotionally, and physically.

When I decided to transition, I felt so much better in my decision knowing that I had to make the necessary changes that I needed to ensure that my family would be ok for the long term.

I am glad I was able to transition and I am still confident with my decision.

Here is what to expect when transitioning from a working mom to a stay-at-home mom.
