Every woman with kids dreams of staying home. Well almost all of them. My friend's mom is a doctor who wishes she could have stayed home after her kids were born, but her DH's business started failing and the industry was dying, so she had to keep working to help support their 3 kids. She urges her DDs to marry men who can support them as SAHMs (but also to have educations and experience first. One of her DDs is studying to be a nurse, one a physical therapist, and one an occupational therapist.) they will work until they have their first kid and then stay home. [ Reply | More ]

I am a divorced WOHM. Great and wonderful that your kid had a good day at school, was playing with friends and generally wouldn't need you. as your kid gets older, that is 90% of the time for most kids. but there are kids for whom it isn't 90% of the time and there is a value to being there consistently so the 10% of the time your kid does need you in that time period you can be there.
