I quit my corporate job to stay at home. We don't stay at home. This is what we do everyday.

Do I Have More Time than I Did When I was Working?
I can now answer "yes". I was telling a friend awhile back that I had so much more time to get things done when I was working full time, and the kids were in daycare. But we have reached a milestone at home. My second daughter is now 18 months old, and is finally looking for a little independence from her mom. This is the biggest change so far since I've been staying at home. In the last few weeks, I've been finding that I don't spend all of my time carrying her around anymore. Infact, she even seems to be playing well with her big sister, most of the time. I can actually get some laundry done, vacuum, and even cook while she is awake. In the past, I couldn't get ANYTHING done with her awake since she needed my attention every moment of the day and evening. Things are looking up for this stay at home mom!

Good for you!
Hey Stuntmom, I'm so glad that you are back in action. After a spell of looking for posts with no luck, I am happy to be an avid reader again. And this particular post was of great interest to me. Is it really true? More time? Fantastic. Now, are you at all interested in broaching the "quality of life" issue, which would seem to go hand in hand with the "more time" issue? I think it's what all of us currently "working-outside-home" moms want to hear... is the quality of life better on the "other side"? For you? For hubby? For kiddos? Or is that too hard to quantify, and perhaps ever-changing...
