If you had the choice, which would you rather be?

Which do you think is harder?

 I'd rather be home with my kiddos but I also want them to have the things they need and a roof over their head.

I would rather work but having done both I believe they're both equally hard in different ways.

I would love to be a SAHM! Hopefully once we get the bfp I'll be able to get out and stay home.

Well I'm kinda both I only work 2 days a week. I know the days I work are more tiring than the days I don't.

 I seriously despise the VS.

I'm a sahm for almost 9 years now. I've gone back to work part-time on dh's day off.  I will probably make the jump to full time next fall when dd is in 1st grade.
I babysit my niece right now.  My Sis in law and bro both work. She works funky shift work and I have her 4 days a week.  I have never felt "VS" towards her as a working mom.

My choice is to be a SAHM. I had kids to raise them, enjoy them, and be with them. Not to dump them off with somebody else.

I have worked in the past and I know both situations are hard. I think being a full time SAHM is harder though, more exhausting, but way worth it.

I chose to be a SAHM.

Both have their challenges.  Both have their advantages.

I absolutely love sah. I would not want to do anything else. However, i don't know how working moms do it, they work so incredibly hard.
