I don't think it was a waste at all. I thoroughly enjoyed working. Being at home is what's right for me at this point though.
I believe it would be a safety cushion just in case. Plus, once the kids get older, then you could begin your career since they'd be in school.
Even after I finish my degree, I will still be a SAHM until all of my kids are in school. I refuse to send them to daycare, so when they are old enough for school I'll put my degree to use
I agree with aimeeegreen4ever. My oldest son is special needs and we have four other children. I chose to be a stay at home mom and as a military wif, it's difficult to hold a job when you move all the time. However, I have a degree and certifications and I'm going to school now. Our children are all school age so I can think about a job and not have to worry about day care expenses.
