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