 Have you always wanted to be or is it just a necessity ?

I saw a post on here a week or so ago and I was shocked at the number of women who said being home was lonley , depressing etc,,,,,

I have always wanted to be a sahm and we can afford for me to be , b ut if we couldn't I would have to go to work , but I wouldn't like it one bit ..lol. I love being home . It's always fun and exciting , never a dull moment ( well okay cleaning and laundry are not that fun ..lol ) .

If it isn't as exciting to you - why ? Are you considering going back to work ?

Just waiting for some ever exciting laundry to finish up , thought this would kill some time :)

 I am a SAHM, because this is where DH and I feel I need to be.

I live being a SAHM. I wouldn't change a thing. I do get bored somedays but there is usually plenty going on to keep me busy.

It was the best choice for our kids. I love being here for them, but it's lonely sometimes and monotonous. I deal with it because I know that what I am doing for our family is the right thing to do.

Because I want to be a SAHM and DH can support our family on his income.  I love being at home and taking care of things.  I don't have to worry about shuffling around if one of them gets sick and I can go to all of their school things.

 I'm a SAHM because my son had some major issues after birth.

I'm getting a divorce so I will be going back to work.

I am only a SAHM this year with my DS (10 mos) and DD (4). I have enjoyed it a LOT, but will need to return to making an income. I enjoy my work, and DD will be starting Kindergarten too. I plan to return to teaching for the upcoming school year.

I've always wanted to be one and luckily my DH always wanted me to.

I live in the country and there aren't any other SAHM's around so yes I do get lonely for adult interaction sometimes but it's totally worth it!

When the kids are both in school I plan to pick up some charity work and maybe a pampered chef job to help get me out and more involved.
