  • At this point I would choose working mom. Not because I hate staying at home but we are in desperate need of some money. Living with my parents is not very fun.

  • I'm not sure how "both" works, but that sounds good. For now I am a working mom.

  • I'd rather be a SAHM. I want to see my daughter grow up, and I want to be more in control of raising her. I don't agree with a lot of the things my mom wants to do in regards to raising her. I know, I know. "Find another babysitter." We don't have enough money, thanks =]

  • ALL mothers are working mothers.

    You do what you have to do.

  • I am both...I work from my office or from my home office and I only work when the kids are in school...

  • I wouldn't mind working from home, but would not leave my kids with babysitters, public schools, or daycare in order to work.
