    I agree, sometimes some people DON'T have a choice but to work.
    I'm lucky enough to have the choice to be staying home with this new bub.

    Default Who is a SAHM full time by choice?

    I've been a SAHM since DS was born 2 years ago. After exDH and I split I made the conscience decision to continue to stay at home and not work even if that means we miss out of some things. DS does go to day care one day a week so I can get cleaning/appointments/shopping etc done.

    I'm currently pregnant with my 2nd child and will continue to be a SAHM. I'm also studying online so when the time comes for my children to go to school I have something to fall back on.

    ExDH and I are on really good terms and he is a fantastic father. He pays more then he has to in child support and see's DS a few times every and calls/Skype every night. He supports my decision even if no one else does an for that I am grateful.

    If I worked full time I would definitely feel like someone else was raising my children.

    I won't be a SAHM, but I'm very sad about it!! I would love to, but it's just not going to happen. DH's wage wouldn't cover groceries + house + utilities etc.

    I think mums are great, no matter their employment status. I think there's very few women who don't do the best they can with what they have.

    We've sacrificed a lot to facilitate our situation, but it's really important for us to have a SAHP situation for our babies in their first 6 years.

    I'm lucky, 80% of my friends are SAHMs and it's considered the 'ideal' by most people we know.
