Oh, yeah, gals....let's keep this nice. I want to give a shout out to any SAHPs out there. We're all making the best decisions we can for ourselves and our families.
I don't want any SAHPs to have to run back to that board to get hugs.
I understand and long for many of the joys of staying at home with my kids. But I work because it provides me with enough benefit to outweigh the cost, at this moment. I'm not going to judge someone for working because they wouldn't be a good SAHP, working because they love their job, working to maintain their personal desired standard of living, ...or a person staying at home so that they are the one with their kids the vast majority of the time and don't want their kid in daycare at all, staying at home so they can craft or grocery shop during the day...I don't even care how people finance these things.
