I used to be the career mom and hubby was the SAHD but a few months after Josh was diagnosed with cancer it became impossible for me to maintain the balance. So now the roles have reversed and I am loving the time at home!
I wish i were able to stay at home!! That would be such a luxuary to be able to stay home and just spend time taking care of the house and all and not have to go deal with a high stress workplace all the time. Unfortunately i work full time though as does Colin.
I'm hoping to work enough in the next year so that i can save up and take a little time off work if we're able to have a baby in the future. I'm not sure that'll happen though.
i'm a stay-at-home mom to 9 fur kids, no human kids. after the bookstore i worked at went bankrupt my husband suggested i'd take the summer off and re-do the backyard of the house we'd just bought. that was in 2001
