  • sahm.. i enjoy being with my kids everyday and seeing them develop before my eyes, but at the same time i wish we could afford daycare (3 little ones under 5 years of age) so i could work. sometimes i crave doing something other than being around kids 24/7 and mostly i would like to help bring in some income, maybe even have extra spending cash of my own. as for now ill have to do what im doing til they start kindergarten.. lol

  • I have been both a working mom and a SAHM, there are benefits to both and right now I am a SAHM, I love it and would not change it.

  • Im both!! I have been blessed with a small job of taking care of an elderly lady and my son comes to work with me everyday. So I get to spend everyday with my baby and I bring home as much money as my hubby!!! It really helps us out a bunch!!!

  • I work full-time and go to college half-time. I definitely need the adult interaction and don't think I could stay home full-time!

  • Both. I stay at home during the day. Work part time in the evenings. I love it that way. it's just a few days a week, enough to keep me from going insane.
