  • We've always agreed that we wanted me to stay home with the kids. He makes good money, but we do have to budget and spend carefully. I think we would have to do the same if I worked. I didn't make that much money, so I think with childcare, transportation, work clothes, etc. It would actually have cost us money for me to work. I save a lot of money the way I cook, and wouldn't have the time to cook that way if I worked. I also have always made a little money on the side that helped out, and didn't have to pay child care.

  • We aren't rich but we can make it off of only what he makes. We both prefer that I stay at home so it works for us. :)

  • For the time period that I stayed home exclusively, no. I worked at night to be able to stay at home with my baby.
