Motherhood is still a partly intangible dream. Sophie will arrive in January and I look forward to spending my days and nights with her. I want to be able to provide her with a safe environment that is filled with love and care. I’m hoping that we will be able to afford my staying home with her full-time so that we can hopefully have the close bond I long for us to share. 2 years ago

I was one for 8 years, then I had to get a job to keep our family afloat. I actually have my own business and am an artist. I have sold my art and have vended local festivals, but I just don’t have the energy for it, so long as I am working outside the home. But it was not profitable enough to justify it as my only way of contributing.
Hopefully we will get straightened out financially and I will once again have the luxury of being a SAHM/WAHM. 4 years ago
Am abandoning this goal for now as I’ve managed to be a Work At Home Mum, which is the next best thing. So, unless we win lotto, I think our finances won’t permit me to be a Stay At Home Mum without working at all. I’m happy with the Tupperware Consultant job though, it means I’ll only be away for 3 hours at a time to do a party and this will be a good break anyway and to have some adult interaction. 5 years ago
I have listed 2 very similar goals…Be a Stay At Home Mum or Be a Work At Home Mum. My aim is to achieve one of these goals. To be a SAHM we would need to sell our house and rent, or convince my brother to buy our house as an investment property and rent it back from him. Otherwise, my other option is to be a WAHM, which is what I want to do instead of teaching and leaving our son with my hubby, mother or friend. Not that I’m worried about his care, quite the opposite, I am extremely happy that we have family and friends to look after him so that we don’t have to stick him in day care. However, I just miss him too much when I’m at work and I want to be at home spending the day with my own child, instead of other people’s children. 5 years ago
