  • I am thankful I have gotten to do it but am ready for something different. I have 1 son who is now 4, instead of me getting stressed because all I do is clean and take care of a baby, we both get stressed and it turns into a mess. And very thankfully, we have a lot of friends so we do playdates multiple times a week and we (my son and I) still get on each others nerves all the time! I was (till May last year) a full time student and will be going back this fall, so it helps, but most important my son is going to pre-k in the fall!!!!! A well needed break for us both!

  • Love it and am thankful for the opportunity! Though, I will admit that there are times I feel like my brain has turned to goo.

  • Used to love it and be thankful for it. Now, after 3.5 years, i feel like somebody sucked out my brain and filled the void with chocolate pudding. Gah! I'm just kind of over it, ya know? I'm thinking I might go back to school in the fall...

  • My husband is in the military and my son and I end up alone a lot so I enjoy working because it gets my mind off of being lonely without my husband. My son also enjoys being around kids his age too. I'm not working right now but I sure do miss it!

  • I love being able to stay home with my children. I like not having to miss the milestones of your child's development. I try to do lots of different things to keep myself busy.

  • I love being home with boys. There is nothing else I'd rather do. I just wish I could make money doing it as we have fallen on hard times and tight money is no fun.
