For the first time since I was 14, I don't have a job.. and it feels AWEFUL. I've always wanted to be a SAHM, but since I don't have my baby yet, I just don't know what to do with myself!! I was working when I got pregnant, but the place had alot of fumes, and heavy lifting, so I quit right away. (it was a family run business anyways)

When the baby is 3 months old or so, I'm going to try to take it a kid or two just to help the household income. I feel aweful that my hubby has to try to work to get everything paid for.

I'm on EI though right now, plus I work a job sometimes that pays cash, which is great.. Other than that, I'm at home..

Our boy, James!! Born February 18, 2006!! xoxoxoxox

I put work full time because there was no WAHM option.

I have 3 businesses though 2 of them are interconnected.

I'll be both a stay at home mom and a working mom when the baby arrives. My husband and I have started our own business. I'm hoping this will be good for teh baby and for us. It means they won't have to be left with strangers often and we can be there every step of their development. And since we both do this neither of us will get jealous if the other experiences something with the baby before them.
