  • im on maternity leave for another whole year. but if i can find a good job, i will go back to work ASAP ;)

    dont get me wrong, i love my DD to death and i enjoy and cherish every single minute with her. But she will go to daycare in a few months and i dont feel like staying at home. :D

  • In alot of ways I am happy being a sahm. I know I can get to my kids without having to argue with a boss. LOL But on the other hand I feel like you. I want to go back to work. Yes for the money but mostly for Adult Convo! Who would have ever guessed you would get tired of hearing mamma all darn day! LOL

  • I've been a SAHM for the past 7+ years, and I can't wait to get back to work...as a substitute teacher...September '09...when younger son goes to full-day Kindergarten!!! YAY!!! I've worked since I was 12 years old...I like having my OWN money and a little independence! :o)

  • I LOVE being a SAHM! It is also very important to my husband and I that our girls be homeschooled, which takes up a lot of my time. I would only go back to work if it were a matter of being able to provide for ourselves.

  • I'm very happy being a SAHM, and I wouldn't change it. But when my son goes to kindergarten next year I might get a part time job, just to have some extra money and meet new friends. I still plan on being home when he gets out of school though.

  • I'm happy being a SAHM. Don't get me wrong... there are days I want to go screaming off into the darkness LOL, but overall it's been the best job ever!

    You remind me of my bff... she's always thinking the grass is greener on the other side and she's in the same situation (used to work, now a SAHM). She gets bored easily and has lots of energy and likes to change things up :-)
