Hey ladies! Well, technically I'm not a working mom yet (I have an interview on Thursday; so cross your fingers!) so my hubby might end up being a stay at home dad. I'm just wondering how many of your hubby's are the ones to stay home with the kids? Do you think that it makes any difference how the kids are raised? I only know two sahd's, and they are wonderful parents (we are in the same swim group) but I'm a little worried about my hubby; I just can't really see him being a sahd. He wants to try tho, so I'm willing to give it a shot. How do you convey to your hubby just what is important to you? For instance (my son is 3yrs and my daughter is 4 months) I have been taking my son swimming once a week, since he was 4 months old. My hubby doesn't like to swim. How can I make sure that he will continue with this? I just don't seem to have a lot of faith. He's a good dad, don't get me wrong, I just don't think he knows exactly what he is getting himself into lol. Any advise? Also, do you feel a lot of guilt being a working mom? And let me specify; I don't think I will feel guilty for working, but I think I will feel guilty that I spent so much time with my son and my daughter will be getting the short end of the stick. Thanks ladies!
