Maybe I'm being dramatic but now my eldest in school, youngest no longer baby (3) dp doesn't want anymore kids I feel like I dont know who I am anymore. I've been mum and just mum really for 5 years. That was good when the kids needed me full time 100% but they are growing in independence and I feel lost. I want to go back in time and have my babies back. It doesn't help that I emigrated here 4 years ago and have never worked in Australia and my work experience and qualifications don't have good fit with anything I can find so I'm obsessing about what courses/ jobs I could do. And so far I've spent hours and have come up with nothing that'll be stimulating and fit in with school hours etc.
i just never made a long term plan I guess! What do other SAHM's do / plan to do at this stage? Money is a factor, but brain stimulation and the idea of doing something worthwhile or $$$$ so we could have great holidays ;-)
