Stay at home mom vs working mom

Bridget - posted on 11/10/2014 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hi everyone
I am not necessarily a mother yet, but hopefully will be sometime soon in the future. I have my degree in teaching, and have worked a little in the workforce (I am 23). My husband is in the military so we travel around a lot so it can be hard sometimes to find a teaching job here and there. Anyways. I always like to plan for the future and wanted a opinion of caring moms out there. I was considering being a stay at home mom once we have kids. I figure the income I would be bringing in if I worked honestly wouldn't be that much once the child costs are taken out of it. My mother was a stay at home mom, and I appreciate that she was. I guess I just would feel guilty if I chose not to bring in an income. My hubby works so hard, and we want to wait until he gets promoted and clear any student loans he has from the past before starting a family. I just can't shake the guilt I guess. I don't want him to think I'm lazy by not working (even though he says he won't think so)-- I guess I am just battling with my inner emotions. What are the benefits? cons? let me know :)
