I am a full time SAHM and I have a 9 yr old and a 3 yr old. I am just at a place in life where I am not sure me being home all the time is a good thing. I don't want them to grow up with regrets and I feel me being home with them and not working they will, but on the other hand they are only little once and it is only for a lil while. I don't have any help from their father and I am single. Luckily I do have the support of my family so that does help. I just wanna do the right thing but right now Im not sure what that is. I love being home with them but somedays I do wish I had a career to go to. My 9 yr old is very involved with school and scouts so he does keep me pretty busy and I am afraid if I went back to work I would miss out on alot. It really gets to me when "certain people" look down on me because I do choose to be a SAHM, its almost like a job defines who you are and I disagree my babies are more important than any career to me. Its not like being a SAHM is a walk in the park jus like any other career we have good and bad days. My babies are very attached to me because I am with them 24/7 so me returning to work would be difficult on them I think. Need some advice or input plz......
