  • I feel the same way! I worked till I had my son nows hes 2 months and I have to find a job and I dont want to go back to work at all!! My hubby would rather have me at home with our son but he just doesnt make enough money. So Im actually having my cousins watch him on the days I have to work. I would rather leave my son with someone he is going to bond to and have a relationship with for the rest of his life than a stranger.

  • Well, the hard reality of life is SAH is a privilege not a right. Does he bring in enough for you to survive? Do you have the heart to ask him to get a better job or work 2 jobs?

  • Sheeyat.

    I have to go back to work but I don't want to.
    I'm going to discuss only working part time...I want to spend as much time with my daughter as I can. It was hard enough for me to work full-time before I got pregnant (I have a case of the lazies and my energy level just isn't great). Now that I have a little baby here, full-time is out of the question, I'll go absolutely insane.

    I would do anything to be a SAHM. Absolutely anything.
