7 Differences of being a Working mom and a Stay at home mom.

If you would like to read more of my "Mommy Writer" posts, click HERE!

A list of things I have found to be monumentally different about me and my kids now that I have left my job in Peru and come to Asia to raise my kids.

About myself:

1. As a working mom, I was fashionable
Now all my clothes revolve around how easily I can breastfeed

2. My hair looked good and properly colored

Now I have five inches of dark roots and no interesting shape

3. I used to use a purse

Now I go around with a backpack full of  extra clothes

4. I used to get facials and manicures

Havent seen the inside of a hairdresser in three years

About the kiddos:

1. Baby 1 and baby 2 both had over 20 different bottles and loads of baggies of breastmilk, although both stopped nursing at 6 months.

Baby 3 has never used a bottle and at 9 months learned to drink water from a cup with a straw, will probably keep nursing until she´s three.

2. When I worked, babies 1 and 2  only wanted to eat with the nanny

Baby 3 eats everything I give her

3. Babies 1 and 2 ate pureed food for a long time.

Baby 3 doesn´t like them, prefers pizza

So which is better?

Id say a mix of both really, now to get that done.

Una lista de diferencias monumentales sobre mi misma y mis hijos que he notado desde que deje mi trabajo en Peru para venir a criar mis hijos en Asia.

Sobre mi misma:

1. Como mamá trabajadora estaba a la moda

Ahora toda mi ropa depende de que tan accesibles son para amamantar

2. Mi pelo se veia bien y estaba de colores

Ahora tengo dos pulgadas de raices y ninguna forma interesante

3. Antes usaba cartera

Ahora ando con mochila llena de pañales y cambios de ropa

4. Antes me hacia faciales y manicures

Hace un año que no entro a una peluqueria

Sobre los peques:

1. Bebe 1 y bebe 2 ambos tuvieron mas de 20 biberones diferentes y muchas bolsitas de leche materna, los dos dejaron de amamantar a los 6 meses.

Bebe 3 nunca usó biberon y a los 9 meses aprendio a tomar con cañita, seguro seguira amamantando un año mas.

2. Cuando trabajaba, bebes 1 y 2 solo querian comer con la nana

Bebe 3 come todo lo que le doy

3.  Bebes 1 y 2 comieron comida pure por mucho tiempo

A bebe 3 no le gustan mucho, prefiere comer pizza.

Entonces, ¿Cual es mejor?
Yo diria que una mezcla de los dos, ahora a buscarla.
