I never pictured myself as a stay-at-home mom. When my husband and I had the “baby talk,” we always imagined that I would go back to work part time. For one we would/will need the extra income and for two, I actually like to work; to get out of the house, to be around people, to do something.
Now that Lucas is here, I’m not sure what I want to do.
How did you decide if you would work or stay at home? Was it the finances? Do you have to work to get by? Do your kids go to day care while you work or do you have family around? How much do you work? Do you like it that that way?
If you stay at home, how did you decide on that? Did your family have to cut back for you to be able to stay at home? What do you enjoy most about being at home?
I would love to hear from different people who work, stay at home, work inside the home, have children in day care, etc. As I’m trying to decide what to do, it’s so helpful to hear from other moms!
