  • Yes, I am but don't feel guilty about it (sometimes) but I'm home because of chronic pain. I still have a school age kid at home so I guess that makes me feel less guilty. I have however, a part-time painting biz I do out of the home.

  • I have always been at home. My children are grown now (24, 23, 20 and 19) and it's just hubby and I and I am a SAHW. We don't need a second income & we enjoy the freedom that comes with just 1 work schedule to work with.

  • hell yeah!

    I have a 16 & 14 yr old.... My mom went back to work when I was in middle school (BIG mistake)... there is a LOT more trouble a kid can get into between 3-6 when they are left alone as a teenager than any other time. There was NO WAY IN HELL I was going to do that to my child.

  • I am thinking of looking for a part time job, but my DH asks me to do paperwork for him and run errands. But sometimes I have nothing to do at home.

  • I am a SAHM. My oldest is 12. I do babysit a set of twins while they are at school though.

  • I am a SAHM. My son is 14. I feel middle school is not the time to go back to work. We do make sacrifices but we are comfortable. I am blessed to be able to stay at home and be here before and after school for my son. I love the post from the SAHW !!
