If you could work outside the home, and hubby be the main homeschool parent, would you trade?

 I have days that I would love to trad off with him. I have no clue what I would do but it would have to make the same or more then he makes so that it would be worth it.

As nice as it sounds some days, no way. It is too rewarding, I don't want to share. ;)
If I *had* to work out of the home, I'd finally open my cloth diaper/baby wearing/ organic etc shop. And it would have a coffee shop inside. :)

Lol, no. I love my children too much. The house rule for us is that daddy is a great daddy, but a horrible mommy.

There are days I'd want to say yes, but no would be my final answer. I enjoy being home with my children and watching them grow and become wonderful people. i was made to be a home mom and homeschooling has made that much more enjoyable. They are only small once and when they are gone I will miss them terribly. This doesnt mean I dont want a vacation from them at some point. But right now I am completely in love with having my children around me.

Legally it is the man's job in Islam to provide for his family so there is no such thing as 'stay at home dad" and many Arabs are traditional, the women become stay at home moms upon marriage. In Ali's country only like 5-10% of the women work.  Women have the right to work in Islam but we are under no obligation to support our family, our money we earn is ours to keep and do with as we like.  Muslim men (if they follow the Qur'an and Sunnah) treat their women like queens and their daughters like princesses.  Of course we can also have servants in Ali's country as well which is quite common in the Kingdom though Indonesia and the Phillippines are no longer sending maids over as servants due to some issues with Saudi law.  *At the moment the Kingdom is looking at getting servants from Morocco for the Saudi women.*  Anyway if I wanted to work I would be an Early Childhood Education/ESL teacher and this is what I plan on doing with my education, though the ESL part depends on if I have a biological son or not.
