I am a SAHM to my 2.5 y/o DD, and really love it. Right now I nanny for one other child part-time because we need the money while my husband is in grad school. We plan on homeschooling, and don't anticipate me needing to work once he finishes up school in a year. But, I can't help being a bit worried about not having a job just in case something were to happen and I needed income right away. Also, DD will be an only child and I am only in my late 20's, so I will have plenty of time to have a career when she grows up, which I would like to do. So I wonder if I should be doing something to have on my resume and to build my skills for when that day comes.
It seems wonderful to me to be able to stay home and homeschool my one child, while taking care of the house, gardening, and pursuing some of my many interests. I'm just wondering if this would be the smartest route to take, since it wouldn't give us much security for the future. Does this seem like a valid concern? I think if I do decide to go work, I will find something flexible that would work with homeschooling as well, but in my mind it would be preferable to not have to try to juggle both if I didn't need to.
Sorry I'm kind of rambling here, I hope that all made sense.
