^^^ what a beautiful picture!!!
my husband would be a terrible SAHD. we thought originally when we started a family that there would be more balance there (we were both in grad school, had been married in undergrad and both worked while in school, always split chores, shopping, life, etc) but then we had my son. and it was a revelation for us that our family dynamic was going to be different than our couple dynamic. i did go back to school while pregnant w/ DD2, and husband had kids for weekends. and he's taken up shopping a lot and certain housework, but his personality just wouldn't deal well w/ being home and w/ kids.
i have an unusual SAHM personality(INTP), but it seems to be working. i still do health counseling, and need routines, adult interactions, mental stimulation (i'm a compulsive reader/learner), but love being home w/ kids b/c they are honestly my favorite people in the world. and my way of liking people is just to hang w/ them and do life.
i also want to stop before 35 for same reasons.
looks like i'll be finished up at 34 unless another surprise happens!
8 years is a long time! i'm excited for you whatever you guys decide!
