  • I've been at home with my kiddos, but I've managed to work from home, and part time outside the home. I'm a single mommy, but I'd rater make it work this way, than have someone else raise my children.

  • It depends on what is right for your family. For me, I stayed home as long as we could afford me to and then worked on the school year schedule. Some women cannot stay home without going crazy. I walked that crazy line for a while.

  • I never wanted to be a SAHM. I went to college for a reason and that was my career. Luckily, I have a fantastic husband and we were able to share both working away from home and taking care of our home and kids. If my husband earned enough that I didn't need to work for pay, then I would be a full-time volunterr doing the same work.

  • I will work a little for the rest of my life. I know someday I won't HAVE to work b/c he will be able to support us. But I will have worked my a$$ off for my Nursing degree so I WILL use it even if it is once a week.

  • If you can save for your retirement, and college for you kids, then one of you certainly has the option of staying home.

  • I think it all really depends on you. Some people love staying home and some would rather work. I LOVE being home! It means the world to me to be able to be here for my son :o)
