First a few disclaimers - if you are a single or divorced parent, you probably don't have a choice between being a SAHP or a WOHP, (unless you are independently wealthy and then i'm very jealous of you!), most likely you have to WOH to be able to provide the basics for your children.

you made me LOL! when I remembered when Andrew was first learning to eat and his dc provider was worried that I'd be upset because he/she'd gotten carrots all over his T-shirt.

and, amazingly (or not-so-amazingly) when they were going to dc or preschool, they were STILL being raised by me. Isn't it cool how that works?

I don't know if you are misunderstanding the question or avoiding it.

I was a SAHM for 12.5 years and I was never the primary parent the kids relied on.

They relied on what ever parent was in the home at the time, sometimes that was me sometimes that was DH, sometimes it was both of us.

"Their teacher is actively teaching and also raising my kids."

Wow, no wonder my Dd2 is so tired when she gets home from work, raising 22 kids.
