Question: I am a . . .

Options:

thrilled SAHM. This is THE life. And I'll continue it after kids are out of the house if i can

I am content-ish as a SAHM. As soon as I feel the kids are old enough to not need me, I'm getting a job

I'm a desperate SAHM. Putting out job applications and looking for childcare ASAP!

I'm a thrilled WM. This is THE life for me and even if I won the lottery, I'd still keep working.

I am a content-ish WM. I see myself working for the forseeable future, but if DH got a big enough payraise to equal my pay I'd love to stay home

I'm a desperate WM. I'm counting pennies every night plotting some way, any way I can stay home with my kiddos

So you've made your choice to be a SAHM or a WM. How do you feel about your choice?

Well my option isn't there. I love being a SAHM and will continue to do so but once all of my children start school, I will be working hours similar to their school hours.

I have had my moments of desperation, mostly financial reasons, sometimes sanity reasons, but overall, I am happy being a SAHM.

That's exactly what I was going to say.

I love being a SAHM. Once they are in school I'll probably start working or volunteering. I can't stay at home with nothing to do.

i don't call working the hours that kids are in school being a SAHM. That's what i plan to do, and I selected contentish b/c i plan to get a job (during school hours) soon as the kids are in school.
