I was asked recently why I don't work, since I'm not disabled.

I'm a sahm, because my husband and I decided it was best for ds. We can afford it.

Have you ever been asked?

I would reply that I do. My job is caring for my home and family instead of paying someone else to.

No. I have never met anyone who cared whether a mom works or stays home except on CM.

Nope. I work outside the home. But even if I didn't, I would probably answer that I'm a stay-at-home mom and that IS work.

No, people see I have three kids and just figure that I would rather be home I guess. I have had old co-workers ask if I was coming back to work and I happily tell them, "nope!"

I've never been asked that. If I was I would say because we can afford for me to stay home and care for our daughter. If you can afford for one parent to work I don't see the point in taking a child to daycare.

This wasn't on cm. A mom was proud to return to work after her injury (good for her) and asked me why i don't work. O.o odd.
