pretty supportive I get the occasional comments from my sisters about me not working (they both work...and pretty much HAVE to work to make ends meet in their households) whereas if I work it would just be extra money (minus the whole gov't shut down thing right now)....wouldn't hurt right now though if I did work LOL
I figure I have enough on my plate with the kids, school activities, other activities, and all the animals, and dh's disability...to worry about working too...ugh...
Most people are supportive, a lot of people around here are SAHMs. This is the country after all.
The funny thing is that I get the most flack from friends. Comments like "don't you want to do more with you life", "I never imagined you would be a SAHM" and "why would you waste your education ?" Are common

I do get comments about my "wasted" education too because shortly before I have a masters degree that I was working on just prior to having my youngest. I finished it up last year, but don't plan on going back to work until he is in school full-time in a few years. With my oldest I wasn't able to be a SAHM, but right now I can be and my hubby and I both think its important. Plus, with having 3 older kids in activities its nice that I can always be here do drive and see games, etc.
my friends don't get it.. like I had a friend say she was excited for the weekend and I said me too and she replied "you have a weekend everyday"... DH's grandma, two of his aunts were all SAHMs so they kinda get it..
