SAHMs what would you do if your husband got drafted?

He would bring home very little money. Would you be upset you had to work if you didn't have the savings to stay at home?

Well I work nights but am home with the baby in the day, so my Mom would just watch the kids at night or my MIL would.

I would faint from shock. He tried to join the military. They wouldn't take him due to screws in his knee. (Thank you hs football.)

Would I be upset that I had to work? No, not if it meant my kids would have food on the table and clothes on their backs.

Well, I would shoot him of course.  

We have enough savings that we could both stay home comfortably.

Well, I'd get a job - but he's 45, with high blood pressure, and has had a cornea transplant, so... I can only imagine it happening if they suddenly didn't have enough young guys, with two good eyes, signing up.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff:  we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

Drafted? We'd move to another country before that would ever happen.

But, no, I wouldn't be upset if I had to work for financial reasons.
