Sort of the third choice, I guess. I did stay home for a bit and HATED it. I need to feel useful, and doing dishes and changing diapers doesn't do it for me. I do find small and large kids interesting and amazing and all that, but I need something more in my life to be happy.

What is it about being a SAHM that makes you so passionate? I feel extremely privileged to have the opportunity to know another human being the way I know my dd. My relationship with her is probably the most interesting and educational I am likely to have in my life. However, I never had any desire to spend 24/7 with her.
