Has it ever occurred to you that Stay-at-Home-Moms don't get maternity leave?
(or am I the last one to the boat on this?)
I cannot believe that I've never realized this before.
I get to think about maternity leave with my second one as the same way it was with my first. I only have to take one child to the doctor. I only have to concentrate on feeding and taking care of one child for the majority of the day. And, if I allow myself to, I really can rest while he's sleeping.
And all of this is possible because I'm a full-time working mom who can take my other child to our regular daycare while I stay home with the baby.
And when this thought hit me this morning, I truly felt blessed.
I feel blessed because I will actually get a maternity leave. And, for the most part, I might get a chance to recuperate from this whole "being pregnant" thing.
How in the world do SAHMs do it?
