Balancing Work and Family: I Miss Going to the Office!
Initially, I fought for the chance to work from home, but now I want to go back to the office because, frankly, I'm bored. I love my little girl, but sometimes I feel that if I don't talk to other adults more often, face to face, I'll forget how! Because I telecommute, I don't have to go to meetings or stay late. But I miss the lunches out and the gossip and getting dressed in something besides jeans.
The friends I do have from the playground love being SAHMs, so I can't really talk to them about what I'm feeling. I don't want to resent my daughter. It's not her fault, but sometimes I dislike being a full-time parent. Am I a bad mom for wanting to go back to work in an office?
