Take your LEAST preferred work status and tell us something that would make that work status more bearable for you if you had to do it for a while.

Examples:

SAHM - it would be more bearable for me to be a SAHM if we had plenty of money for me to take the kids to places like the zoo, museums, Gymboree, etc instead of having to rely on only free things.

or

WOHM - it would be more bearable for me to be a WOHM if my employers had on-site daycare so that I could be closer to my kids during the day.

or

WAHM - it would be more bearable for me to be a WAHM if my kids were old enough to entertain themselves while I got work done instead of having to wait until they take a nap, which is almost never at the same time as each other.

I WAH, and I don't find WOH or SAH totally undesirable.

SAH would be more bearable if I had an interest or hobbies that could take up the time while my kids were in school, playing with friends, and doing extra curricular activities. SAH would also be more bearable if we we had a large amount of money already put aside so that dh could retire someday and also pursue his interests as well.

WOH would be more bearable if dh had a set schedule for work that we could work around, or if I had very flexible work.

But what would you NOT like to do, and how could it be made more tolerable to you?
