So what I would really love to do is become a stay-at-home mom to my 7 month old daughter. There are a few teensy things preventing me from reaching my goal of staying home:

- $$$ (see above). I hate cooking. I like shopping. I am afraid of turning into a MOM. You know what I’m talkin’ about.

- Mommy brain. Or more specifically, ADD with a side of baby. I see these mommas who are like, engineers of the homestead y’all! They DO exist, and I have to become one if I’m ever going to convince husband that having a full time at-home wife is the best thing ever. So, a little less of this:
