I've been a SAHM for 5 yrs and am starting studying next year with the view of eventually going back to work in 2 years time when my kids are 6 and 7 yrs so thats a pretty good stint.
I dont actually "love" being a stay at home mum and really miss working but it was the right choice for my family (and me) at the time.

I've been a SAHM for this year but I have been looking for work to. Due to the chronic illness I have, plantar fasciitis in both feet and a stuffed ankle, finding a job has been hard. I've applied for heaps of desk type jobs I have experience or some experience in but fighting with 100-300 others :-/
But it has been nice to be able to spend more time with my DS and that I don't have to rush anywhere everyday.
I think I will need to go back to study and do some volunteer work once my DS is settled into Prep next year. Just not sure what I want to do keeping my body and illness in mind.

I'm a SAHM too. My boys are 2yo and 7 months. It does get lonely. Hoping to start online study next year so that when my kids start school I'll be able to get a good paying job.

I'm a SAHM of 2 for 6 and a half years now. My youngest is almost 11 months.
I am also one of the only ones I know. But I love it. Every part of it.
If I didn't stay at home with my boys then I don't feel like the one raising them.
It's good to know there are some of us left.
My dh and I have a fair split in what we do so I don't feel guilty at all.
He does nothing around the house but he runs our home business.

I am not a SAHM. Infact I have had to get back to work when DD1 was just 6 months and will be doing the same when DD2 is 6 months. I would love to be a sahm but I can't because of the kind of work I do I need to remain in the workforce to be employable year after year.
Having said that, just because I will be back at work it does not mean looking after my babies is secondary. It is my top priority.

I was a SAHM up until 3 months ago when I had to return to work for financial reasons. Thankfully I only work 2 days a week, so I still get alot of quality time with my children.
My children's needs and care is my number 1 priority. Unfortunately that means I have to bring in some money to help feed them and keep a roof over their heads.
I would love to be a SAHM forever. I hope you appreciate how lucky you are.
