  • 1 child who is grown and no longer lives at home

    Yes I enjoy it. Both now and when my son was growing up.

    I didn't become a SAHM until my son was 10. I got tired/burnt out from my career as a Social Worker/Case Manager and decided to start staying home.

    Anywhere from 9-11am

    None/ I do no daily activities with my child. When he was home, he was in school during the day .

    I will continue to stay at home. I have no interest/desire or need to return to work.

    At 48 years old, I've already accomplished the majority of my dreams/goals that I had for the first half lifetime. I'm starting a new list though, for this last half my this lifetime. I hope I'm just as successful in accomplishing those endeavors as I was in accomplishing my list from the first half of my life.

  • I have 3 children.
    I have been a SAHM for 13 years, there are times I thoroughly enjoy myself. Some times I'd like to run away.
    DH and I decided that I would stay at home as long as I wanted to and/or could. So far, so good.
    I get up at 6 am.
    My kids are all in school now. I am a fiber artist, so I work on my projects/ideas. I also volunteer in DS2's grade (kinder.) I also have a part time job. In the summer we take road trips, hike, work our garden.
    I do hope to travel more. I also hope to take my art to the next level and get into some galleries.
