I'm a wahm. I tried being a sahm after my son was born, but I just needed something else to do. I know it may sound selfish but I was used to working and felt lazy sitting at home, but now I can sit at home and work

Thanks Jaidynsmum for my AMAZING siggie!

I work full time outside of the home... would love to stay home and maybe work part time once baby girl is here... we'll see though... I think the cost of daycare for 3 kids will shock dh into letting me stay home, lol...

I will be a working momma. I'm a teacher so luckily I do have breaks throughout the year, I couldn't imagine working all year long having a little one! As much as I have been looking forward to this summer I'm already looking forward to next summer with my baby!

Eventually I would like to work part time but that will be at least 3-4 years down the road. Maybe after we have #2.

I am a working mom but I get to bring my DD to work with me, and I will bring this little one as well. I don't work quite full time though, usually about 30 hrs a week.

I am a SAHM, but I am really looking forward to getting back to work, probably when we move back to Australia, which is probably in about 2ish years

Thank you so much BAM for my awesome siggy

I work full time + right now. Would love to be a SHAM but if we get a new house that can't happen (I also make twice as much as hubby so it would be a huge sacrifice) I think I will work for a few more years and then maybe stay home when number 2 comes around.

I am sort of working from home, been looking for work, but that just seems to not be working out, so I am doing what I can. I also am a full time student, (almost done).

I am so lucky to be a wahm. I work remotely for a marketing company. I do have to travel at times for meetings but most of my time is spent working from home.

I worked outside the home as a teacher until the end of May but will be taking this school year off. I am really excited to be at home for the early months with this baby and to have the summer before the baby arrives to spend with DD who is 4 and is very used to having all of our attention to herself.

I personally feel that being a SAHM is the hardest, most never ending but wonderful job anyone could ever do. I am busier as a SAHM than if I work outside the home.

I am a teacher - so i get a long summer break and nice breaks with the holidays. I love my job, so I can't imagine not working. Plus, I make more than DH, so it really is not feasible for me to not work - especially with insurance.

I am a part time working momma. I work about 25-30 hrs per week. My DH is applying for a new job this summer and if he gets a salary increase then I should be able to cut back to 20-25

I am a WAHM as a contractor so I set my own hours/work as much or as little as I want. I really consider myself a SAHM because of this even though I know 10hours/week still qualifies me as a WAHM (which is what I voted).
