      I always wanted to be a SAHM, but unfortunately, it was not feasible for us because I’m the breadwinner in the family. If one of us was to stay home, it would be my husband – and he wanted no parts of being a SAHD – LOL.

      Luckily, my parents were able to care for my daughter from the time she was 6 weeks old. I am very blessed to have my mom there for my daughter – and I feel like I am able to share my very special sweetie pie with my mom – who is now alone, since my father passed away.

      If it wasn’t for my parents, I probably would’ve reconsidered my entire family/home planning.

      Your children are only small and young for such a short time. With my

      first 2. I was in school and worked from when they were 9 months old-

      4 years old. On my days off I cleaned all day and tried to keep up

      the laundry and run errands. I know some people can balance and do it

      all but I ran myself ragged. I didn’t even make much money to make it

      worth it at all. My husband went back to school and worked 2 jobs.

      With my work schedule we rarely saw each other and I became a stay at

      home mom. I treid selling some products from home without much

      sucess. I would like to do something to make additional income but

      find real opportunities rare for the SAHM.

      I totally support your position on spending time with your daughter

      over getting a second job outside of the home. I too would not

      sacrifice my time with my daughter.
