Are you a stay at home mom or a working mom? I'm a working mom. I love spending time with my DS and could stay home with him if I wanted to but I like being around other adults especially when DH is gone.

I am a SAHM, but all my kids are in school.  I want to get a job because I am so dang bored half the time.  But, at the same time, I like being right there if my kids call me from school or are sick or are home on days when there is no school.  Right now, it just seems easier to keep things running smoothly if I am at home while my husband is deployed.  I don't know if I can handle not working much longer though.

I am  a SAHM, my husband doesn't want me to work. I ♥ being with our children. My husband wants me to stay home with the boys till they go off to college. Once they are in School I may get a part time job, my husband calls any money I make, my play money.

I'm usually a working mom. I am an Elementary school teacher but since we are moving twice in 6 months to different states I chose to take this year off and be with my kiddos. Plus you usually have to sign a contract for a year not just 6 months and I wouldn't do that to a school district!

I'm a SAHM. Its something my husband and I talked about before we ever got married and both agreed this is what we wanted for our family. If we ever get to the place where i HAVE to work, I will, but right now its possible for me to be a SAHM. I love it, and couldn't imagine being away from my kids all day.

I've been a sahm coming up on 12 years in Feb.'10. Something we discussed before & after we married, that I would stay home once we started having children. But, before the children came, I worked full-time out of the home.

 I am a SAHM right now, although I "work from home" since I am a business owner (I sell Avon), but I can't find a regular 9-5 job. I also just got out of the Army last summer.
