Re: What Lengths Have You/Would You Go To To Stay Home?
I would only stay home if we were able to continue to save money, contribute fully to both of our retirement savings and maintain health, disability and life insurance for all of us, in addition to our household expenses. I am not willing to sacrifice our long-term financial stability to stay home. Luckily, my mom keeps my son and my nephew who is close to is age. I do pay her and I feel very comforted knowing he is in such a loving environment when he is away from his dad and I. I am however working towards the goal to change careers next year that will allow me to work closer to home and more time off. It will mean I will earn half of what I do now but I think that it is worth it.
