Re: Does anyone actually LIKE being a WOHM?

Had to chuckle at this!! I do so much better with a fairly rigorous schedule - I can relate!

I am a WOHM and have been the entirety of my DD's life. I took 12 weeks off for Maternity Leave when I had her and while I LOVED being home with her and just being a Mommy and a Wife, I was also really ready to go back to work for adult interaction! Not to mention, my bank account was hurting because I go crazy staying at home too long. I am very fortunate though, that I only work 2-3 days a week (12 hour shifts) with family caring for DD (and DD2, due in Sept.) so I feel like I get the best of both worlds without my children being raised by someone else.
