Working moms -- would you?

If money were not an issue, would you become a SAHM?
I wouldn't personally, but part-time would be ideal!

  • I agree part-time would be ideal. I would not want to be a full time SAHM.

  • Part time would be great. We're very happy with DD's childcare arrangements and I like my job.

  • I would love to be able to stay at home with my DD. during my 8 week leave I had so much fun having the freetime to do things as I needed. now being back to work full time, or even part time, I miss being with her. at least knowing that while I'm at work, she's with her daddy. that helps tons.

  • No, I like my job and my kids are getting towards school age, so I wouldn't have anything that I needed to do all day. I have the best babysitter I could ask for, so no, I would not.
