Today's OPP is from Allison:


Yi guys,
After having my second baby I made the decision to leave my job to stay home with my kids. I have one that’s in school and one that stays home all day. While I think it’s been good for them, it’s been miserable for me. I’m so lonely. The only time I see other adults is at the grocery store or in line to pick up my son at school. I don’t have any friends to spend time with and my husband is so tired after work that he’s usually in bed around the time the kids lay down. I don't have time to get a part-time job or take a class to make friends so it seems like there is no hope. I want to do what’s best for my kids but being this lonely really sucks. Do other stay-at-home moms feel this way too? Does anyone else regret making the decision to stay at home? Is this just the way it is for us?


Do you feel like Allison does? What's your advice for her?
