If you are a WOHM, do you secretly envy the Moms who get to spend all day with their babies? If you could quit working to spend more time with your family, would you actually do it, or would you be enrolling your child in classes to keep him occupied?
If you are a SAHM, Do you envy your friends who are WOHMs?
Are you a one because you choose to be,(meaning there is absolutely NO reason whatsoever for you to get a job, you and your mate are so financially well off you even have your kids college funds saved for)? Or because you want to be, meaning you can't bear to leave your children, because no one can do as good of a job as you are doing? If it's because you want to be, what changes have you made to your lifestyle to accomodate this?
I'm just curious about what people think about this. I know many of my WOHM friends are happy that they work, yet they miss thier babies. Meanwhile, many of my SAHM friends are happy that they get to stay home with their babies, yet they miss the extra $$.
Amazingly, both sides complain about the other side.
