I am a SAHM who is lucky enough to work PRN on occasion while my parents or sister-in-law watch my 5 1/2 month old baby girl (BG). Prior to having BG, I was working my way up the corporate ladder and in 4 years had worked my way into a management role. I was a career-driven woman married to my best friend. We had speculated about getting pregnant for years and we elated to be having a baby.
We has many conversations about our family structure once the baby was born. My husband was pro-SAHM; he wanted to be the bread-winner while I raised our children. I wanted to be a mom more than anything in the world but was concerned about finances and giving up a career that I loved. How could we afford to be a single-income family while setting up retirement and college funds? What would we do without an emergency fund? We just couldn't afford it. And yet, here we are today and I am a SAHM. We'll get into the nitty gritty later, but for now, you get the gist...
Tata for now,
