  • I wouldn't like being home all day; I prefer to work.
  • I like my job, and we do need the money.
  • Other

you were missing MY choice - I LOVE my job and the money (while needed) is a NICE perk.

That's called humor. She was poking fun and mainly at herself. Really, it's not always about you.

My husband told me I should post that I work because he's too lazy to get a job ;) But the truth is that he is a much better SAHD (kind of-- he works pt) than I would be a SAHM. He even made surprise apple walnut muffins the night before last, because I wouldn't have had anything to eat for breakfast otherwise. I enjoy working (most of the time) and I'm good at what I do.

who would be raising your child then???


As for healthy debate - your poll SHOULD have included an option such as "i LOVE my work and would work whether we could live on one income or not".
