Mom confessions: I wish I had a fulfilling career outside the home

It's time for a Mom Confession - because, let's face it, we're real mothers and sometimes it doesn't work the way the parenting books say it should.

This Week's Confession:

I wish I had a fulfilling career outside the home.

I am a stay-at-home mom and never had a "fulfilling" paid career, so I can't really imagine the draw to the workplace. While I am fulfilled in many ways being home with my kids, sometimes I wish I had something outside my family, something that was my own. -- anonymous

Question: Do you ever wish you had a career or something of your own outside the home?
