  • I am a working mom, but I just met a lady who takes her son to daycare from 9-5pm. I found it really crazy.

  • isn't that why it is called SAHM no I don't take my kids to daycare my kids are almost 5 and my youngest just turned 2 and they have never been in a daycare. I haven't worked since I was 7 months pregnant with my first the only people that ever watched my kids are my mom, my sister and 2 of my close friends I don't get noone very often to watch them though, but when I do that is who I leave them with

  • SAHM's need a break every once in awhile too. I wouldn't blame them if they put their child in daycare once a week so they can get the grocery shopping done and other errands they need to do. What's the big deal? A lot of people don't have grandparents or siblings or close friends to watch their kids ever, so a break once a week would be great, I'm sure.

  • Umm maybe I misunderstood what a STAY AT HOME MOM was but I was under the impression they stayed at home with there child or children therefore whats the need in sending them to daycare??? I stay home because it's cheaper then daycare.. Thats the dumbest thing I've heard in awhile.. My son has never been to a daycare and never will as long as I'm alive.. My granny keeps him and my mom thats it! He's always with either me or my husband
