You should keep working! You'll be happier and more fulfilled -- and therefore a better mom -- pursuing your own ambitions. You love structure to your day and adult interaction -- something that's hit or miss when you're home with the kids. Plus, that extra income is important to maintain your current lifestyle -- and can come in handy for some spectacular vacations to make up for the time you've been helping to support your family

I don't need a quiz to tell me where I need to be.

I could have told you my answer before I started - working, I love my career.
But the beginning was wong, it wasn't a hard choice at all. Actually we didn't even discuss it and I never thought about other 'options'

Sorry? I still don't need a silly quiz to know what my life needs, lol. I am capable of copying and pasting too, but thanks for trying. It must be all those hours I spent on my education and working.

You should stay home, Mom! You may also want to assess whether your family could afford to live without your income. You don't like other people telling you what to do, and at least in this job you can be the boss! You have the patience, creativity and tolerance to roll with the crazy ups and downs of 24/7 childcare -- and even cherish it. Remember, no one ever looks back on their years and regrets having all that time with their kids.

And I am a SAHM.

I was puzzling over what I said in my reply that offended you.  I hope you didn't think I was being sarcastic. I truly was trying to help. Sometimes my FF settings don't let me see links, so I thought if I would try pasting the link in a reply that it might help. Absolutely no offense meant. I'm not that kind of a person.
