Making the transition from SAHM to Working Mother
I know that people go to work and kids go to daycare/school everyday. This is not unchartered territory. But it is to us! Life has been so simple and free-flowing, but now we have to have schedules and chores and conversations about these things. I revolt against having strict timetables and schedules. I hate to have my time spoken for. Yes, I know this makes adult life a little difficult at times. Things will have to be done on certain days at certain times. This is what is causing my anxiety, not really the rest of it. The details always work out. To put it bluntly, I don't do stress well.
So any advice from mothers who are or who have juggled a working schedule with motherhood? Any tips or warnings are greatly appreciated. I have no idea what I'm doing.
