    All the YESs to being a stay at home mom. I was never able to and can offer 100 different stresses that happen when you work outside of the home and have kids.
    You are blessed Amy!!!

    Love hearing about Mums that are able to be at home with their young children, I did it and don’t regret a thing. They grow so quickly and you are providing a solid foundation which they will fall back on in years to come. Enjoy every moment.

    Right now you are lucky to be able to be home with your kids. I’ve had many mornings of leaving the children crying as I drove to work, also crying. It was horrible!

    Now they are both at school and I’m racing them to breakfast club and school, then working.. and then racing in the evening to collect them, then reading and homework etc..

    Being mum is very hard and we can only do out best! I would have loved more but due to money and work, we have stopped at two. X

    We adopted our first son. It took some adjustment and we able to have my wife stay home with him. Late we found out he had autism and having a parent available for his care and development was important.
    What you do for your child today will be with him the rest of his life. There are no paid sick days, the hours suck and the retirement package well forget it but the pay is amazing.

      Blair, that is exactly right! The benefits suck but I know it will be so worth it. I’m glad your wife was able to invest in your son.

    You are doing the best and right thing for your kiddos. I am a grandma and while my kids were small I was also fortunate to stay at home and guide them day by day. I do not regret a moment of those wonderful years with my children. They have their own kiddos and I love to spend time with them as well. I am still working full-time, so I do not have the luxury of taking care of them full time, but quality time does help.
    Do not let anybody tell you that you have a lesser ‘job’ because you have the MOST IMPORTANT job of all on this planet Earth, and that is called Mother to your kiddos.

      Esme, thanks for your kind words. I’m so glad that you told me how you don’t regret staying home with your children. It does give me piece of mind.
      Now if only the job paid what it is worth haha.
