No. I became a SAHM because I was homebound. Now that I'm not I stay home because I'd never see my husband if I did go back to work.

No I love what I do and worked very hard to get here. I stayed home for 6 years, didn't like it that much.

I don't get naps :(
But yeah. Partly.
I feel its important for a parent to be home with the kids, and since I am the only parent who lactates, I win!

I wish I was but not for those reasons. I want to homeschool some of my kids (4 kids in school one in preK, I would homeschool 2 of the ones in school). I hate missing soccer games for my 17yo because I have to deal with all the after school stuff of my other kids (since they can't seem to take responsibility & do it after school & instead wait until I get home from work). If I was able to help them get it done right after school they would have more time before & after dinner for free play or after school activities. And I could make it to DS's games.

BTW I forgot to mention I'm single so I have no choice but to work. Plus side is I work for a daycare & have been there for 6 years so I get a good discount on childcare for the 2 that are in daycare (the 10yo is in before school care only & then the 4yo is all day preK there at the center).
