No, I wouldn't. I love my kids, but eventually they will go off to school, have their lifes, which is fine. But I think if I stayed home I would be giving up my career (which I love) and in the end I would have no kids and no career, because the fact is, that from a certain age on they don't need that much assistance, they actually want to be left alone and I would be stuck in the house alone, doing the laundry, cooking and cleaning all day,waiting for them to come home and bright up my day. Eventually, the day would come when they wouldn't come home, they would be off to college or something and then what would bright up my day? I need to feel fulfilled by myself, independent of others. I realize there are some people that find fulfillement in raising their kids, but that just doesn't do it for me. We are all different, nothing wrong with that. In the end, I do everything, because I have my work, but I also have the kids and the house work, and this and that... and at the end of the day I'm completely exausted from doing everything, but that makes me much happier.
