Stay at Home moms...

Do you enjoy homemaking skills, staying home with your kids, etc.? Or do you do it as a sacrifice for your family, but would rather be working?

  • I enjoy it very much. I grew up the oldest daughter of a single mom. I had a younger sister that I cared for after school and over the summer. I cleaned and cooked at a very young age so it kind of comes "naturally" so to speak.

  • I enjoy staying home with my son and do not mind taking care of the things in the home. I would rather do it than have some other person raise my child or take care of my home.

  • I do it because I enjoy being home with my DS and I am also working towards my bachelors so that I can help provide better in the future. I wouldnt mind staying home even after I graduate because there is always so much to do around the house!

  • I enjoy it. I love playing with and teaching my daughter things. I love cooking and cleaning. But, when she starts school in August, I'm going to look for a part time job for while she in school. I see no point in my staying home alone all day.

  • I enjoy it and I do it as a I sacrifice for my family. I would love to be working part time but right now it is cheaper on us if I stay home. I enjoy it because I get to see almost all the 1st times with m children. (example: walking, crawling, talking)

  • I had much difficulty in the beginning. I loved my career and I felt guilty that I wasn't bringing home a paycheck. Now, I feel blessed that I was able to stay with our DD. I see her grow and develop every day and its very gratifying. I nanny to earn extra cash for the family though, so I'm sure that's helped with my guilt.

  • Do I enjoy homemaking skills? I really do not like to do the dishes or the laundry or clean the bathroom. lol But I love staying home with my kids, teaching them and being able to watch them grow. Being a sahm has always been my dream job. I went to college and got my degree in Education just in case we were never able to have children for some reason.
