My husband's ex is still "SAHM" even though their children are 16 and 18... Oh, and they live with us, not her. Yeah. THAT is crazy. Now, personally I will be getting a job when my next child is old enough to start school, but that is my choice, I want the extra income again.

Not even going to lie, growing up one of my dreams was to be a stay at home mom with out the kids. LOL

Thanks for the replies. Yes I guess that would be a "homemaker." when the kids are in school. Even when both my kids are in school full time, I think I'd like to remain home so that I can be available for their activities and PTA etc. We can definitely afford me to stay at home and I like having my devotion and focus my kids and my house. And my hubby lol.

Dude. Youre gonna LOVE this. Cora starts full day head start in august. Clay will have an injome daycare sitter (in MY home) while im home- hahaha. But, ill have full time school online then. Ive been asked why i need a sitter while im home but you know why? 1. Because school is hard and clay needs attention 24/7. How am i supposed to get good grades if i cant focus on school? 2. Whats the matter with extra help? It would be nice if i could have someone vacuum for me since ill be crazy busy! 3. Im hoping the babysitter will be my friend and possibly have ackid clays age so he gets to socialize. Screw what others think.

That's something I would do too. I'm starting school full time in the fall and Isaiah will only be 3. Sera will be in school 5 days a week but only for half a day.

You have to do what is best for you and your family. Who cares what others think. But I really do think you and Kevin should get on the baby making band wagon.:wink:

I want to, I really do. I'm going to start my BSN in the fall and I do want to go for my MSN eventually. That's so much school though but I am positive that its worth it.

I am currently debating going for it myself. I cant start in the fall tho because I will miss to much with the baby being born, so the earliest I could start is January. Which wouldnt be to bad, but I would have to do night classes with work and I wouldnt see the kids majority of the week.

That's my deal. I'm contemplating not working at all and just being a full time student because I will die if I don't see my kids.

That is my thing too, I work weekends sometimes too, so I could really go almost 2 weeks without seeing them which would really suck.



I know around here it is easier to get into to a hospital or office if you have been at one while going to school. Most places hire within before the outside.

Right? Which sucks when we move often. I don't want to work on base and I don't know anyone around here who isn't military affiliated. I know tons back at home in Virginia. Hell, my mom has been working for Kaiser for 10+ years. I could easily get in there.

I used to work in a salon but decided to do hair from home a few hours a week. I have a child in high school, 2 in middle, and 1 in kindergarten. All of my children (and alot of there friends) count on me being home/available......so DH and i agreed that i wont be returning to the ''outside workforce'', (thats where your ''pop out another'' comes into play...... we have a 2yr old and a 4mo old also :) But if a women decides to be a homemaker once her children are grown , good for her!
