  • My hubby was on work comp for two years because he crushed his hand and had multiple surgeries. He actually enjoyed it and I made us quite a bit of cash!

  • Nope. I would not have it. A lot of people in our life would disagree as well.

  • My hubby works from home. He makes decent money. I could not be a SAHM, I love to be on the go. I love the time I get with my children, don't get me wrong. I usually work early daytime while they take naps and oldest goes to PreK

  • My S/O has been laid off since Jan 2008, and it doesn't look good at the moment. He may have to retire, but he doesn't want to. He sends out resumes, but between his age, and the job market, he seldom even gets a call back. It's a shame with all the guys that don't want to work and could , here's a senior who wants to and can't.

  • Hubby would love to stay home if I made more money. Trouble is, I'm a teacher and I love my job, so no SAHD. He's a great cook, a wonderful devoted dad, and I'm not meant to stay at home!

  • He's way better SAHD than I ever was a SAHM. Our laundry has never been so April Fresh and his meatloaf would make Martha Stewart hang herself in that useless barn of hers.
