    Hi cat on a soapbox - I had our only child in my late 30's and my husband and I agreed that I would stay at home. We were lucky to be able to and I don't regret it at all. Some of my friends changed after I had my child and that still makes me sad.

    Agreed about not being too lazy. Many times, especially when I just have to clean something, that I would rather do something fun. I respect everyone's decision to work or stay at home. It's so highly personal.

    Do not see yourself the way that they feel, see yourself the way that you feel.

    That must have been hard while in an unhappy marriage ChristinS. Ideally for me I would love to work from home so I could have the best of both worlds.

    Interesting duffsmom - As my daughter has gotten older I do get that guilty feeling that I could be out there doing something more and, like you, I like not having someone tell me what to do and I really love summers off!

    I think you are right The Examiner-1 - it is probably difficult for people who don't want to stay at home.

    Hi Jackie - I am finding that as my daughter gets older she wants more freedom, but I still have to drive her around, pick her up etc... I can imagine it is really difficult when both parents work, but everyone seems to make it work.

    I agree with you Hendrika. I miss that stimulation of a job too.

    Even though I no longer have a toddler, my daughter still thinks she is the boss sometimes, but staying at home is definitely full time work.

    As my daughter grows up I have been doing more volunteer work which gets me out and talking to adults. When she was younger that was much harder and I missed it.

    I agree dragonflycolor - I always got really tired of cartoons. My daughter is in school now so I do volunteer work.
