  • Yup. always have and still are. My mom likes to be busy and we've never had the money for her to stay home. Plus, they kinda started over when I was 15 and had another baby and then another a few years later.

    SO, I now have a 7 yr old and 4 yr old sisters.

  • Why? My mom is retired, my dad passed away a few years ago but worked into his 70's. My fil worked until he was 68 and my mil worked up to 65. She started when their youngest was in High school.

    Again OP I ask why?
