I've been on maternity leave for over 12 months now, I have 2 years approved maternity leave but a part of me feels like I'm ready to go back to work.
My husband wants me to stay at home for the foreseeable future but I just can't help but feel that's not me. I've never seen myself as a stay at home, I've always seen myself as a career orientated working mum. Financially I don't need to return to work and the extra money would just go straight to savings.
My biggest fear is being out of the workforce so long that I will struggle to get back in, despite being well educated with loads of experience.
I swear people think I'm crazy that I want to go back to work, like it's every mothers dream to stay at home forever, but I just can't help but feel there is more to me as a person than being a mum.
Am I totally crazy for wanting to go back to work despite having no financial pressure?
