If you're a WOH/WAH mom, what sort of "downsizing" would you need to do in order to afford to be a SAHM? (SAHM defined here as not earning any money)

For me, I would have to put all our non-essential possessions in storage and move in with my parents.

I imagine if this man were your Dad. He is not only a medical doctor, but also has a PhD in Chemical Engineering and now he is about to become an astronaut! I'll bet his mother is a proud mom.

Eh! One of my profs is Moroccan and educated in french private school in Morocco as well as in a French U. All the same, he speaks very nice Standard Arabic. I am sure that is not how he speaks when he is back in the old hood, but nor is it a foreign language to him. The key, as in many languages, is to know the literary language.
