A Mothers Journey from Career Women to Stay-At-Home-Mom: What’s it’s really like to completely change your life

‘Many women before becoming mothers are pondered by questions like:

  • Am I going to change?
  • How is the world around me going to accept me?
  • How am I going to work with so many obligations?

Many people that don’t understand that everything is going to change, would say:

“I am sure it’s not that big a deal, I fill find the time to work and see my friends and have time for the baby”

But what they should have said is:

“I better be a stay at home mom I will have more time to spend with my baby, home obligations, and maybe some time for me if I find someone to help me”.

What is going to change your life?

At the beginning when you are going to hang out with your single friends it will be very interesting for you and them as well, but then after a few months you will start to realize that you have only a few things in common. Not only that you are not going to have time for them but the chats are not going to be the same. They are free to go anywhere, their life is little bit more expensive than you can afford, not in a hurry to pick up their child or anything on the way home, and they look much relaxed than you.

A little incident

I suppose that the moms who are breast feeding probably had the same problem like me. What happened to me was unspeakable but I was lucky. When my daughter was born I thought that all of the Milky Way was in my breasts. I used up all of the tampons to stop the milk but after two or three hours it was like I had two tiny windows on my shirt. I had the biggest exam (college) in my life and my nanny was pretty late that day. I was so angry at her that I could kill her; anyway I went to my faculty but forgot to take care of the milk problem. When I started solving the test, one of my breasts started pumping milk. My professor saw it and I started to panic, then she came and put her bag under my breast. I felt very stupid it was like filling her bag with my milk instead of solving my test.

Make a little change

Stop feeling sorry for yourself and try to make something different and be more creative with your time. Yes there is a very big of difference between a career woman and a stay-at-home but if you do not have time for yourself, then hire a babysitter to have a little time for “you” here and there. Spend some time at the gym, it will help you to feel more beautiful about yourself, and bring back your self-confidence.

A Career Women to Stay-At-Home-Mum

Taking care of your baby is a big change in life and most of the mommies are feeling angry and can’t accept this type of changes. But this doesn’t mean that your career is over. There are lots of jobs over the internet. Maybe one of them is going to make you happy.

Can moles cause melanoma? What is your risk?

How much do you know about Moles, Freckles, and Skin Tags?

There are a few types of skin lesions that are very common. They are called benign or non-cancerous. As you can notice your skin is not just white, black or yellow, there are changes like moles, freckles and skin tags.

Can moles be a skin problem?

Some of us have many moles and some of us don’t. Some moles are brown and some are black and some can appear anywhere on the skin.

Moles appear alone or in groups during childhood till you become 30 years old. As you become older you are changing and so your moles become raised or they change their color. It is normal to have 10-30 moles on your body. There are moles that do not change at all, disappear over time or others that have hairs on them.

Does a mole appear with a reason?

Reason for moles appearance is because cells grow in the skin in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. The type of cells that gives the skin pigment and its natural color are called melanocytes. If you expose yourself in the sun your moles may be darker and this might happened during pregnancy or teen years.

Types of Moles

Congenital nevi are those moles that appear since when we are born. Congenital nevi moles occurs one in 100 people and they may likely develop into melanoma (cancer). If you notice a mole or a freckle that have a diameter bigger than a pencil eraser you have to check it at your dermatologist.

Dysplastic nevi are moles larger than a pencil eraser and irregular in shape. Dysplastic nevi have dark brown centers and lighter, uneven edges.

People that have dysplastic nevi may have more than 100 moles; they have bigger chance of developing melanoma.  If you notice this kind of changes in a mole you should be checked by a dermatologist because this is a serious form of skin cancer.

How can you know if a mole is a cancer?

Most of the moles are not dangerous but there are moles that are of medical concern. Those moles that look different from the existing, moles that appear after 30 and moles that are quite bigger from the first time you notice the mole. If you notice any changes in a mole from the color, size, height, shape, you should go and visit dermatologist to examine it. Also there are cases when the mole is bleeding, itch, ooze, or become very painful you should check it right away.

If you want to examine your skin at home you can use a mirror for that matter and ask someone to help you. Be more careful with the areas of the skin that are more exposed to the sun, such as face, hands, arms neck, chest and ears.

There are important characteristics you should consider when you are going to examine your moles. Here is a small but important list and if you notice any signs you have to visit dermatologist immediately. May or may not be cancerous.

  • Asymmetry: If the one side of the mole doesn’t match with the other side of the mole.
  • Border: If the edges of the mole are irregular or ragged.
  • Color: The color of the mole is not the same.
  • Diameter: The diameter of the mole shouldn’t be larger than the eraser of a pencil.
  • Evolution: If the mole is changing in size, shape or color.


Melanoma is a just another word for skin cancer. The localization of the melanoma is the back and the lower leg in women.  It is the most common cancer in women ages 25 to 29.

 Can Moles be treated?

If the dermatologist believes that a mole is suspicious and need to be removed, he will take a sample of the mole to examine. The sample is very small tissue and this procedure where he is taking the tissue under a microscope is called a biopsy. It is a very simple procedure and there is no place to panic. If the dermatologist believe that there is a risk the mole is cancerous, cutting through a mole will not cause the cancer to spread.

If the mole is cancerous and only a small section of tissue is taken then the dermatologist will remove the mole and the normal skin around the mole.

What can cause Freckles?

  • The appearance of freckles can be genetic. If someone of your family has freckles or if you have freckles than there is a possibility that your child will have freckles to.
  • The other reason why freckles can occur is the exposure on sun.

Is there any reason freckles to be treated?

The freckles are totally harmless and there is no reason to be treated.

What is a skin tag?

A skin tag is a small flap of tissue that hangs on the skin with a connecting stalk. Women and elderly people have most often skin tags. They are localized on the neck, chest, back, armpits, under the breasts, or in the groin area. Skin tags do not cause pain but they sore can be irritated if anything rubs them.

How can skin tags be treated?

They can be removed with scalpel or scissors by your dermatologist. Another way to remove them is by cryosurgery (freezing off), or with electro surgery (burning it off with an electric current).

Moles in children: what parents should know

Moles on young children are nothing to worry about. It is a normal thing for kids to have a new mole during childhood or adolescence. Moles grow and become darken or other moles become lighter. Most of moles are harmless and melanoma is rare in young children but still there are few types that should be examined by a dermatologist just to be sure.

Daddy’s Guide to MolesJ

Common mole:  It is a beauty mark and is harmless. Most common moles develop in children and teenagers and they are not dangerous. If the mole bleeds, itches or looks different than the others than should be examined by a dermatologist.

Dysplastic mole: They are smaller than a pencil and they are classified as a dysplastic because they don’t look like a common mole. If you notice that your child has a dysplastic mole you should know that the child should have routine skin exams after puberty.

Spitz nevus: This mole appears in the first 20 years of life and contains variable colors like red, black and brown. Spitz nevus is very similar to melanoma that is not possible for a dermatologist to look at this mole and guess whether it is or is not a melanoma. When a lesion resembles a Spitz nevus, no matter age it should be examined by a dermatologist.
