Hey everyone! I am trying to conceive a child, since I lost my son on Feb 11th at 20 weeks gestation. My husband is up for a huge promotion that he'll get in Feb 2010. With this promotion, he'll make almost triple what we both make now together, so I have the option to stay at home and be a parent, if we can conceive another child. I honestly never wanted to do that before, but now.. thinking about not having to get a day care and being with my child all day sounds so great to me. for the SAHM, I know you enjoy it, because if youdidn't, you wouldn't do it probably, but whats the best thing about it? what's the worst? I have thought about working part time, instead of full time just to get out of the hosue every now and then, but I just cant decide yet. What's the best part and worst part of being a SAHM?Answer Question

The best part is being able to see your child's firsts. Being able to see each milestone and not some other women. The tough part is that it is constant & very little time for yourself. But this is very simple to address. You need to find time for yourself by getting a babysitter. This allows you to take care of your needs. This is a must!!!!!

I want to add that staying at home is a choice! I'm extremely proud of my choice to be a SAHM.
