  • I've been a SAHM and I can't wait to go back to work. I had a part-time job for a little while that I loved but it only covered day-care costs so we decided it wasn't worth it. I miss it though.

  • I do both. I stay-at-home during the days, and work three nights out of the week. Best of both worlds!

  • Sometimes I wish I could go back to work for the break it would give me, but I do love being a SAHM! I couldn't think of a more important job then raising my children.

  • being a sahm gets crazy and can really drive you nuts but it is so much better! the first few years are so important. i feel like i am lucky to be here with my kids taking care of our home!

  • I would prefer to be in a situation that was financially stable enough to stay at home with my babies until they are school age by far! I was able to stay home with my daughter and I loved it... now that I'm expecting my 2nd staying home isn't an option and I'm very sad about it I feel like this baby will be missing out on all the one on one time my daughter and I had and I'm hoping I can still find it in me to be as patient and relaxed this time around.

  • I love being a sahm! I only worked for a year after having my daughter. But I really did like the independence of having my own checks and buying the kids things when I got paid.

  • I love being a sahm because I get to spend time with my son and watch him grow but most inportant we don't have to worry about finding a babysitter or putting him day care so we both can work.

  • I stayed at home for the first 5 or 6 months after my daughter was born, just because I couldn't even think of bringing my little baby to daycare! My husband and I then worked opposite schedules until the night job I had got pretty scary! I ended up going back to my office job when she was almost a year and my uncle and aunt watched her, which was great! I have fears of daycare, which sort of came true once she had been going there for a while, and I started her going to a friend's daycare instead!

    I am working on getting some home schooling done myself so I can be a SAHM when our new bundle comes in January!
