    If I didn't get me time, the laundry would never get done and my apartment would look like it'd been hit by a bomb. High energy babies = little time for housework. I LOVE DAYCARE.

    That said, if I only had 3 days a week with my bub, I'd cling to him like glue.

    Who are we to judge the situation of other mums. What does the label of SAHM mean anyway? I read lots of posts on here by mums that say "I'm a SAHM", but then they go on to mention they work 3 nights a week, or 2 days a week, etc. Not only that, but they may have health issues, other family caring responsibilities (maybe their own mum is having chemotherapy and needs to be driven to doctors appt's all the time) or they may have mental health issues.

    I had severe coccyx pain from 34 weeks into my pregnancy and I still have it a bit nearly 2 years later. In the early days I had a babysitter come one day a week and she was great. The chance to let her hold bubs for a little bit allowing me not to have to sit with a bub on my lap was heaven. And all this time I had my ds at Kinder & then school 5 days a week (during term). We struggled to afford it, but had to prioritise it because of my health, but yes, til my dd was 5 months old I was a full time SAHM.
