Entitle? Really? Stop when you want or need to go back to work. If I ever make it to sahm status I'll do it as long as I want to. As long as our finances allow. So far at the rate we are going I could be a sahm for a long time.

My dh is a sahd. I asked him to quit working. I make more money and he is a great dad.  He loves it and is relieved that the kids don't have to go to daycare.  I am relieved he didn't get offended. lol

My DH is a SAHD and I went back to work 12 weeks after DD was born.

I'll simply transition from a stay at home mom to a stay at home wife.  Dh makes enough for me to do that.

I will go back when all the kids are in school full time. Until then I'm home, I won't put my kids in daycare unless its a last resort and there are no other options.

ill stay at home  and  make sure the kids have help at school ( by volunteering) and being home when the kids get home. My mother was a single mom and worked b60+ hours a week.. i want to make sure my kids get quality  time with me and any help they need with school and after school activities. Ill stay home till i get bored and find a part time job or a part time place to volunteer at.

I'm not sure. I mean I'll still stay home for their first few years of school so I can be there for that. My parents worked 1 1/2 hours away from home so they never got to go on any field trips with me. I don't want my girls to miss that too.

I am a sahm forever.
DH feels because of cultural beliefs and our religious beliefs that he is the one to financially provide form our family
