I find this topic quite interesting and love hearing people’s stories! I have an 18 month old son and I am currently staying home with him as I feel like I would miss out on far too much if I dumped him in daycare and went to work. In saying this, it does mean that our little family has financial struggles, but my hubby & I make it stretch and he supports my decision to stay home. On the other hand my best friend has just gone back to work (her son is 6 months old). She said she didn’t have a choice really, as they need the money. The thing is, they love to spend, like fancy things, holidays, etc…all the things I have sacrificed to stay home with my son. So my question is, is it really about not affording to stay home? Or perhaps not willing to sacrifice some things in order to be home with your child?
