I'd like to be a WAHM actually. Sorry, had to be difficult. Still trying to find something I can do from home that I actually want to do.

It's funny because when I was a working mom, I always said that's what I wanted. When I'm a SAHM, I feel just as content.

I think the overall personal circumstances play a big part in that, though.

I was a SAHM for a short time, and I found that it definitely wasn't all that it's cracked up to be.

Not for me.

SAHM. I like being at home raising my children. SO makes plenty of money so that we can easily afford for me to be at home. I was a working mom and always felt guilty for leaving DD even though I worked night shift. She was never in daycare since SO kept her at night while I worked but I still felt bad for leaving her.

I like that I am more flexible in my schedule now. Its hard enough to plan anything around SOs work schedule and DDs school schedule and then having 2 little ones at home still, I can't imagine throwing in another schedule.

I was a working mom for many years until about three years ago when disability made it nearly impossible. I never thought I would want to stay home. Now that I have I regret working all those years. So if it were a choice I had now I would be a SAHM

I've done both.

I've been a sahm for several years now, though.

I'll never go back to work unless absolutely necessary.
