Maybe more complicated, but not necessarily harder. I was a SAHM for a long time, and now I work FT while going to school FT. Since I truly enjoy what I am doing now, it is much easier for me than SAH was, when I was sort of miserable. (I never would have admitted that at the time, I was trying to convince myself how great it was!)

That's what I was going to say, the degree of 'difficulty' would more depend on the specific circumstances, ie. if a mom *has* to work but would rather SAH and vice versa.


I'm coming to the conclusion that I need some balance in my life and I don't think FTSAHM is cutting it so I'm looking at going back to work PT.

Mark you calendar -- we agree!


I think moms are moms and if a SAHM has help more power to her - if a WOHM has help more power to her -- there's nothing noble or glamorous or righteous about foregoing help if you need or want it and can afford it -- If i could afford it I'd have a house keeper and drycleaning service in a new york minute and it's just me and the one kiddo at home!


 

Yes. We. Did.

Why does having help disqualify a parent from being a SAHP? If it's not hard enough, you don't think a parent earns SAH status?


We have household help, but then again I have two children of elementary school age.
