Why are you a working mother?



  • I would like to stay home, but we need the 2nd income.
  • I would like to stay home, but I'm a single parent.
  • I wouldn't like being home all day; I prefer to work.
  • I like my job, and we do need the money.
  • Other


You will be able to change your vote.

alright it was a little extreme - I just came back in an ice storm after having a tire repaired and I'mnot in the best of moods -- I always aim for caustically sarcastic not hateful but you haven't been here long enough to know that about me.

I just don't feel anyof us shoudl have to justify our choices other than because I wanted to. What does it matter beyond that?

I WOH because I like my career and because it benefits me and my family.

Then perhaps you could give a better option?


I choose other, since you didn't have an option that fit.

Am I correct in assuming that your career prior to becoming a SAHM was not something to which you were very attached?

It doesn't....it's just nice to better understand people that are different from yourself. I can't believe how many working mothers have replied to me today!! LOL!! This is great, but it's taking a lot of time. I probably won' t be on here much longer.

You're not going to understand anything with that sort of poll.
