Re: When did you stay home?

I stayed home when we were very comfortable financially & having expensive emergencies or DH becomming jobless for 6 months wouldn't hurt our lifestyle or cut into our retirement.

After my 3rd was born we decided I should stay home. Paying for daycare was almost the same as what I made. Not easy to cut down to one income and we have a bit of debt now, but I wouldn't miss this time in my kids' lives for anything!

Ive been making inroads with hubby!!!!! He is now mostly ok with me quitting when #3 gets here. He wants me to babysit to earn extra money "or something". I told him we will see how things are when #3 actually arrives and we transition to being a family of 5 and he agreed. He is also more onboard with all my Dave Ramseyness. Yay!!!

We are also looking at him deploying again next Christmas and he doesnt like me to work when he is out of the country.......more stuff in favor of my argument, I guess.
