I was a SAHM with my DD until she was a year old (by then her dad and I had split up and I HAD to work). Now, two years later, it looks like I'm back at home, which I don't mind in the least. It keeps down costs for babysitting, gas, etc..

I am a working mom. I have a higher salary than DH and there is no way we could afford to live on one income with all our expenses right now.

If all goes as I expect, I don't think I'll have a choice.. I'll have to work.

I am a SAHM mom now, and will continue to do so. I am still finishing school.. and honestly with 3 kids that need care, I wouldn't bring anything home after getting paid--it would all go to daycare. Hopefully though when I am graduated and have a better skill set I can go back in a few years, I get bored at home!

Well, since I'll be taking my maternity leave at the last minute like my pregnancy with dd, I'll have 140 days home if I choose to. I will be working full-time though. I love working.

Well, the plan is to hopefully somehow have me stay home, mainly because there is no way that we can swing daycare with three littles. My mom does it now (we pay her) but she is really struggling with it, so I won't even ask her to do #4. I am hopefully moving up in my direct sales job to a higher position and am going to work my tail off to have that job supplement my full time income.

Since I'll be a single mom, I'll go back to work as soon as I can and I'll probably have to keep working full time.

I'm a working mama, but I'm looking at changing my career. It's just too much stress and work with 3 kids at home (I can't imagine it working with 4). Right now I'll have the entire summer off to hang with all my kiddos until mid/late August. But if I decide to switch jobs, my leave situation may be different. However, if I can find a job where I'm not so stressed & bringing home work I think the early sacrifices will be worth it.

I already stay at home, so I will also be continuing to do so. At some point I will probably...maybe lol....go back to work, but not until our youngest is in school!

I went back to work full time after DD, and I've been a SAHM since my DS was born. DH tried to convince me to quit after DD was born, but I thought I made too much money to do that. Then when I was pregnant with DS, he made a spreadsheet showing how our tax bracket would drop, we'd qualify for more tax credits, and after daycare and commuting expenses, my paycheck would only contribute an extra $100/month to the checking account. No way was I going to keep working for just $100/month!
