1. It Can Get a Little Lonely

One thing that surprised me about becoming a stay at home mom was that it can get a little lonely. You might not think that it would because after all, you are surrounded by little human beings every waking minute. But they may not be talking yet or even if they are, they may not offer you the kind of companionship that you need. To combat this, don’t stop getting together with your friends every now and then. If that isn’t possible, at least get out and mingle with adults from time to time.
