I apologize in advance that my thoughts are going to seem pretty scattered as I write this, but I'm hoping that just by posting this and maybe getting some advice/feedback will make me feel a little bit better about myself as a mom.

My son is 14 months old. My husband and I always had the "plan" that I was going to be a Stay at home mom once we had our son. Unfortnately, when he was born, my husband was out of work and I was forced back to work when the baby was only 6 weeks old. (Not unheard of by any means, just not what I had in my head). Needless to say, because my husband was home, I had a tremendous amount of help those first 6 weeks. I eased into new mommyhood rather nicely.

Thank you both for responding.

Both of you are right. My son has gotten so used to being with my husband that I'm sure this fussiness is just him testing his boundaries and really learning who I am again.

I'm sorry it hasn't been a smooth transition to being a SAHM.
