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.

Hey, since Joy and family have moved in with us, does that mean I'm back to raising her? Not to mention Adam, Alex, Lindsay, and Parker?

Ok, I've read the entire thread and there isn't much for me to add. IME, there is no difference to the child, whether or not he has a sahp, a wahp, or 2 wohps. Goes to dc or is watched by grandma. And what about the other kids that grandma watches?

With the standard disclaimer that I'm not talking about Erica. She is always the exception to any rule.

Well, if anyone were up to the job, it would be you. ;) But yeah, no. I think you're off the hook. ;)

I have the same problem. What you need to do is type your edit right after your original post stopped, rather than putting a paragraph space between the two. IOW:


This:


Hi, my name is Charlotteishere ETA nice to meet you


Not this:


Hi, my name is Charlotteishere


ETA nice to meet you.


Hope that helps :o)

LOL, as my grandmother once said, "Look, I had that kid in class for about 9 months, tops. No way are you blaming me for how he turned out!"
