    I have been a sahm since 2006, next year dd2 starts kindy (2 and half days) so I hope to work 1or2 days just for a little extra money.
    I love being at home with the kids and would only ever have a job that was in school hours being with my family is really important to me

    Default Who is a SAHM full time by choice?

    We own our own business and I go in about 2-3 hours a week and DS either comes with me or goes to nannas so I'm technically a SAHM !
    I could easily go back to work and make money but have no desire too !

    I love being able to be with DS all day, my SIL and 2 other good friends are also SAHM so I have heaps of people to catch up with! I do find it so much easier than working ( I only have 1 child so far and he is pretty easy going )

    I get annoyed sometimes getting asked all the time if I miss work or adult company - um I don't miss work at all and have plenty of time to talk to friends/family!

    DF says I can stay at home for the rest of my life if I wanted, lol, but I think when all the kids are at school full time I will work.

    I am.
    It was always my plan to stay at home full time until all my children were at least school aged. It is also necessity, as i don't have the ability to earn enough to cover childcare but even if i could i wouldn't want to go back to work.
    I do wish i could back to part time study though.

    Default Who is a SAHM full time by choice?

    I am a sahm by choice but I feel guilty about it because we really could use the money from me working but we'll soon have 3 kids and then DH and I agree that it's better for me to stay home with them rather than pay childcare firstly for the cost, I'd just be working to pay for someone else to do what I could do myself. I don't want to miss anything and I don't want others doing things with them for the first time that I want to.

    I am sick of hearing people ask when are you going back to work or I guess your not going back to work yet when they find out I'm pregnant or your lucky you can stay home. We are struggling and missing out on a lot for me to be able to, i wish I could say that i wouldnt ve eorking forctge money but in the mean time I'm selling everything we dont use regularly just so we can make ends meet. that's not going to last forever though.

    Don't get me wrong I love staying home and I'm happy to miss out on things and the stuff I'm selling is just cluttering the house up anyway. I love being a mum I just wouldn't mind having some extra cash in the bank and not have to make deals with every bill we gave coming in.

    Sorry to bring this thread down.

    Me!

    When we made the decision to bring little people into the world we also made the decision for me to stay at home with them. I couldn't stand for someone else to raise them...

    Raise them? That's a bit low don't you think? Working parents still raise their children!
