Just wanted to get on and say hi:)....I am a RN, now a SAHM for the past 4.5 yrs. Loving every minute of it. We might not have all the fancy long vaca's we had before. But we do ok with the 1 paycheck....We just get very creative with our family time:)...I think we are having more fun...I find staying @ home much easier especially when there is a problem. hubby & I are both Medical professionals. It's very difficult for us to just leave work for any reason unless someone is dying. But on the flip side I feel more busy no than when I worked & took care of my kids. I just wanted to put that out there and hope to be talking to some of you soon:)

Thanks Erin & Torey.........I am so glad to have found circle of mom's.....only other SAHM's know what we go thru everyday...It's not as easy as ppl think.....I'm more busy now than when I worked as a RN in the ER/trauma unit......But you know I wouldn't change a thing if you paid me.......And Torey for me also it was very scary going to 1 paycheck....but we have figured out a good way to make it work.......I think getting back to the simple life is the best. My motto is more money, more problems:).....thatnks to both of you for replying....I hope we can talk in the future:)

Hi Sabrina,

I have been a SAHM since Sept. 2007 because I was expecting twin girls. I have been enjoying being home with my kiddos everyday. The next best part is being home in the afternoon to greet my oldest when he gets home from school. We was also doing ok with 1 paycheck until lately. My husband was laid off for a month and I was so scared as to how we were going to keep everything, but our prayers were answered. I found a job that I can do from home to bring in an income and the best part is that I work my own hours so I can still have as much family time as I want. And my husband found a job also. As of right now things are starting to look up again. I just hope that we don't have to face that problem again because that is not a good feeling.

Hope that you have a great day.

Hi Sabrina! So glad you LOVE being at home. I have a 10 month old and love being at home with her. I can't imagine all I would have missed if she was in daycare somewhere. It was always my dream to be at home with my kids, so I am so glad that my husband is able to support our family with his income.
