  • As anon. pointed out,I love being there for all of my dd's "firsts" as opposed to hearing about them. I get to pick my son up from school and spend quality time with both of my children. Sure,somedays I wish I was anywhere else but home and then I remember how blessed I am to have the opportunity to stay here with them.

  • I loved seeing all my second DD's first also. My first DD was given up for an open adoption at birth, and it still pains me that I wasn't there for her firsts. I also love having the time to cook good meals! When I was working I had a hard time finding the energy to cook the way I do when I SAH.

  • well, im not in the situation where i can just get up and work right 9 months pregnant and i have 2 toddlers..yes i am on assistance, and i refused to get on it for the longest time. the only thing i like about staying home all the time is i get to wake up when ever i want. of course i dont miss all the kids 'firsts' but im really tired of staying home. i also live somewhere where i dont know Anyone and i would have a hard time putting them into daycare becuase i know what can go on.

  • I like watching the wonder in my childrens faces as they learn new things. I like being the one answering their questions. I like being here.

    My DH works so I can stay home. My income wouldnt do squat for our family so this is what works best for us.
