  • I work now but I was a SAHM when the girls were babies until they started school. I'm glad I got to stay home when I did and I'm glad now I have a job being that jobs are scarce.

  • I'm mostly a SAHM, I work super part time and am starting school, but that all happens when The Hubs is home. Honestly I hate being a SAHM, I'm someone who needs to work and contribute to society and I can't wait to get my career started. However, I LOVE being with my daughter and am so thankful that I have the opportunity to stay home with her.

  • I'm a SAHM and I'm happy and grateful that I have this option. However, I would like to get a part-time job just so I can get out of the house regularly without my children.

  • I'm a stay at home mom and consider that being a full time job plus overtime, and I love it wouldn't have it any other way

  • I work outside the home and yes I do love my job. My SO stays home with our DD now. Before he got laid-off he worked 3rd shift and i worked 20 hours a week first shift so it works out for us cause we don't want for our DD to be in child care at all. I would love to be a SAHM but thats not what can be done today in the way the USA is today. I make good money and I have days off on on the weekends and week days also. My whole life is my family.
