New Mom Secrets: I Don't Enjoy Being a Stay-at-Home Mom

14

It's hard being a new mom (or even an experienced mom to a new baby), and sometimes we do things we know we shouldn't, despite what all the experts say. But this is a safe place to share your secrets -- we won't tell.

This Week's Secret:

"I'm a stay-at-home mom to a 6-month-old baby, and I don't enjoy it. My husband wants me to stay home, but I have no friends and no family nearby, and I'm just lonely all the time. I love my daughter, but I need time to myself and never get it. My husband works long hours and doesn't like to watch our daughter by himself, so I never leave the house alone. I don't enjoy my 'job' even though many women would trade places with me." --anonymous
