It's easy to lose confidence when you become a mum but you're raising human beings, that's no small task!

I have studied/worked casually since my DS was six months old, he is 5 now, trying to build a career. I had severe post natal depression after him and didn't like being at home. I felt isolated, so went back to study earlier than expected.
I now have a Dd who is 5 months old and have a year off. I LOVE it! It is such a different experience. I love being there for both kids, being there when they are sick, cooking, keeping the house sorted, not running around the whole time, and taking the pressure off DH. When I was at work/Uni I never felt I fit in anywhere, I am older than the rest of the Uni crowd with far more responsibilities. And I didn't fit in with the SAH crowd either as I could never make play dates/activities. Now I have a great social life.
I never thought I would be someone who enjoyed being at home so much, but I truly love it.
I want a career and I will return, but I know I will find it really hard going back.
