Choosing to be a full-time mom is not an easy decision for me because I know that I have to give up my career and future incomes. The journey is not also easy especially if you are not used to it, there are also times that I cried because I miss working and I want to have my own “me time”. But still, I never regret that I chose this career because even I do not have a salary, I know deep in my heart that it is a rewarding career.
I am always there to witness his first cry, first smile, first laugh, first tooth, first crawl, first step, first word and other milestones. I am always at his side 24/7 and I am proud and happy because not all mothers have the chance to be with their child.
My sister lends me a book, “Professionalizing Motherhood” by Jill Savage and this book really helps me a lot and makes me realize that being a full-time mom is a valuable career choice. There is nothing to be ashamed of.
