    I want to be a SAHM, but it is not in the budget. My husband is fallowing his dreams. Until that pans out, I have to work.

    When the school year starts and my wife goes back to work i will be taking Meeka with me everywhere I go. I am glad I have a 4 seater golf cart and there is plenty of room for her to go with me everyday.

    The main reason for working is to meet the needs of our kids and family. So if finances were not big a deal I would prefer to stay at home and be there for my family 100%

    It would be great if there was an option to be a stay at home father. Until that day comes, I would love to be a stay at home mother LOL!

    Unfortunately I had to work because we needed the income to make it.

  16. I have always dreamed since childhood that I would be a SAHM with the kids. I was attempted to be raised with the ideals of my paternal grandparents that a woman was to sah and raise the kids, while doing all the housework and having dinner on the table at a certain time.

    Finances are a factor in our household, but I’m lucky to have a husband that believes that me staying home with the kids is a lot more important than any thing money could buy or in our case pay for:)

    While I love my job and my career, I would much rather make a career out of being a mom. For a variety of reasons, I only get to have one child in this life so I don’t want to miss a thing and want to be as involved as possible. I’ve spent 18 years focused on school and work. I’m ready to focus on family.

    I would totally be a stay at home mom IF money not being a factor means my hubby makes enough for us to still be able to not only buy necessities, but also buy things of interest, partake in hobbies, sports and other activities, buy things without guilt and take family trips…. in other words if he were rich or well off…. yep….. I’ll be working for a very, very…VERY LONG TIME! LOL! 😀

  21. i love being with my son
