yeah...i'm a sahm...its okay, sometimes is can be overwhelming and i feel like i'm contributing nothing (financially) to the family. it was my husbands idea...we really wanted me to stay home with the boys, i didn't really have much suggestions since i wouldn't be able to find a high paying job, just basic min wadge since i only have a HS degree.

I'm a SAHM. It was my husbands choice. I wish I was out working again. The thing that sucks is that I was the one making the most money at the time! I think my husband regrets it a little now because our savings is pretty much gone now. As soon as my three year old starts school I'll go back to work. Unfortunately I won't make anything near the amount I used to make.

I am! I love being a stay at home mom. Not only do I get to see ever new little thing my daughter does, I get to finish school. Not to mention one of the perks is sleeping in! My husband is actually glad that I am. I told me while I was pregnant that he wanted me to stay home with her for a few years and finish school.

I'm a SAHM. My husband and I decided that when we had a child that I should stay home for the first year. My son is 8 months old. I feel bad that my husband has the stress of bringing home the only paycheck, but he assures me that he wants to do this for his family. He loves me being home. I like it, but I sometimes get over whelmed with a baby. It's hard to go from being able to do whatever I wanted and go wherever I wanted to having to take care of this helpless little baby. Don't get me wrong I love my son. It's was just a big adjustment. It definetly gets easier as they get older.
