  • I think the majority will say the opposite of what they actually are. Me, being a working mom, would rather be a SAHM.

  • Way back when, I would have rather been a sahm. But now after everything is said and done and I find myself a single mom, Im so grateful for my job. I dont know how we ever would have made it without it.

  • That was funny! I'd rather be a SAHM. I used to work outside of the home so know the feeling when you just don't have time. But the truth is SAHM don't have time to look their best at all times too! Thanks for sharing that video!

  • I like what I do right now. I work part time and still make some money but I'm still home a lot. Plus, I'm always off before my son gets home from I never lose time with him. It's nice:)

  • i enjoy being a stay at home mom. sometimes i wish i could help contribute to the family income and there are days i would like to socialize with other adults in a work environment. i use to have a lot of fun at my old job as a pharmacy tech, but the pharmacy will always be there and my kids will not always be little. it makes more sense financially for me to stay home right now.

  • I am a SAHM and prefer being home. I can do more with the kids that way. We have alot of activities like little league, dance and what not I am able to do after school, where if I was working I wouldnt be able to do. For instance today my dd has dance at 4:45 two towns over. If I was working then I probably wouldnt be able to take her. Someone else would have to.

  • I've been both. Advantages to both. They were the right choice for me at the time. Choose one-SAHM

  • STAY AT HOME MOM, I worked with my first dd and hated it. I now have 3 kids and i've been a sahm for almost 3 yrs now and I love it.
