    Thanks Nic!!! I have been a SAHM for over 9yrs. The amount of criticism I get is phenomenal!!! But I love what I do, it's what is best for my kids and my husband WANTS me to stay at home, so I will do it. It is damn hard work though, I often wish I could get at least one day a week away from it all, but I know that if I had that chance, I would miss my kids like crazy. They are 9, 7.5 and 2, with our 4th baby due in April.

    Hiya Nic
    I am a sahm of 3, aged 6, 4 and 7 weeks.
    So I am busy busy busy but loving it all the same. I think it is probably a harder job then most give us credit for and is definately a 24 hour 7 day a week job (unless of course the go to nans) but still they are on your mind.
    Anyways welcome and hope to get to know you better.

    yeah i know angel the criticism is huge!! Parents treat kids like accessories these days!!! have em and throw them into day care!!! Im totally against it! We struggle a bit with money etc but im happy to be home with my boys and are planning another hopefully a girl!! you sound very busy but are doing a great job!!! good luck with your pregnancy!

    hey girls. I'm a stay at home mum of a 4 month old baby girl, and i plan to stay that way for as long as i can (hopefully until after 2 more kids ) and i find that even when i mention this as out plan i get criticised! I don't care what anyone says though i know this is what i am supposed to be doing for their sake (and mine, i dont want to miss out on anything).

    just wanted to say that i agree SAHM's rock!!

I respect Mums who work outside the home...i use to do it part time and hated it...i hated being away from my kids but didnt havge a choice due to finances. Im lucky enough now to be in a position where i can be right where i want to be...with my kids every day
