Hey, Stay at Home Moms, how do you guys do it?
How do you afford to stay with the kids? How did you get your husband's / partner's on board with you being a stay at home mom?
Working in and out of jobs and being around people I hate is really putting a strain on me when I would rather be at home with my daughter. Don't get me wrong, I'm not lazy. I have almost completed my Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies, couple more classes to go (foreign language, Ack!) , but I have never known what I want to do once I have my degree and quite frankly now that I am a mom the answer is "be a mom." I can't help it. I just don't see the point in working my butt off for $12 an hour right now at an oil company where everyone else makes more than me and treats me like a kid, when I could be at home with MY kid and be a mom, not a kid myself, and not miss out on everything she has going on. I feel robbed of money and all my child's milestones when I take her to and pay for daycare.
