I don't NEED to work

My husband makes more than enough money to support us.  I could quit my job and we could live exaclty how we do now, no struggle.  I don't need to work for the money but I work full time anyways.

My son is school aged and I would feel lazy if I was capable of working but yet instead I just sat at home while he went to school and didn't contribute financialy snce I am able.

Since I don't choose to stay home apparently I'm a terrible mother to y'all

no you are perfectly fine. you have a school aged child so if you want to work away from home you are certainly not shoving him in a daycare to do it when you don't need to be.

Just because some people think you're a bad mom doesn't mean you need to make a post saying what you do so that people can either come in and bash you or defend you. Do what is right for your family and that is it.

Nothing wrong with that at all.

That's not a bad thing. What the heck would you do all day while your kid is in school? I would be bored out of my mind lol. It's good you are making a better financial security for when you get older. Nothing wrong with making money even if you don't need it :)

I think there is absolutely nothing wrong with your decision. Good for you for wanting your son to have a better life.

I don't feel you are a terrible mother, but also don't feel that it's either work or sit home all day. There are plenty of things sahm's of school age children can and do to fill their day and make it productive.

I plan on going back to work as soon as my youngest starts school. I don't need to work, but I won't need to stay home anymore once they're both in school.

 pfft. Im done working unless its needed. I have one child and he is about to start school. I considered going back to work but my husband asked to me stay home and well.. i sure the hell am going to!! there are many things I might do with this time. The first thing is Im going to take nutrition classes at the local college. who knows after that. Im 42 and have worked full time the majority of my life since I was working age.
