  • I enjoy working and we need the income and I don't think I am the type of mom to be a SAH, I would love to work only part time but my job is flexible so it works out well.

  • i did stay at home and when I did there was no food in the house or bills were getting left unpaid and we ended up 35 thousand in debt because of credit cards he kept getting. Sahm was not paying for us to have basics.

  • Simply cannot afford it. And if we could, i would still want a PT job. I don't like having to completely rely on someone else for money. Also, in this house, if either of us decided to be a SAHP - it would be my DH. he makes less and would LOVE to do it after 20 +yrs of never being unemployed.
