I am a teacher off for the summer.
Somewhere....it's getting very cold, lol.
"A SAHM stays home so that strangers don't raise their kids for them"
Really that had nothing to do with why I was a SAHM for 12.5 years.
The job of a SAHM isn't to leave your children with strangers while you pursue your dreams, you might as well be working.>>
Yes. We. Did.
Just because your friend said it doesn't make it true and doesn't mean YOU have to believe it.
I'm currently a SAHM to an almost one year old and quite frankly, it's not working out well for me OR the little guy.
I've been both, although not when my kids have been elementary school age, now that would be easier than working, for me.
That's what I did, I worked very part time for a number of years.
How in the world can someone who sees your child every day be a stranger?
