Hi All! My name is Annaleigh I have 2 beautiful little girls and a baby on the way. I was up until 3 months ago a SAHM. My dh makes enough money for us to live very comfortably without me working. However, I just recently took a job to pursue my love of animals as a pet sytlist. I love it!! Somedays, though I wonder if I should be working or being a SAHM. It is so hard to balance things! What is everyone's advice?? What should I do?

You should work since you clearly enjoy it. Kids thrive in a loving home whether mom is home or not. Studies done have shown kids in daycare and at home all do basically the same in life. Do what you want and if some martyr tries to make you feel bad tell her to kiss your ass. I am a SAHM but that was my choice and is right for me. Your life you know what is right for you and your family.

Repulsive is a big word...........you are doing nothing wrong. Maybe consider part time if you feel conflicted? My kids love their sitter and since I teach, I'm home with them for breaks. I say do what you love, it brings overall happiness that affects the whole household.
