After one of my old childhood friend read my "at work" frustation post, she asked me if I'm considering turning into a SAHM (stay at home mom). Hmm.... I know it will be very rewarding as what could be more important than your lovely kids, spending quality time with them is every mother's hope. I believe every SAHM would agree with me. I thought for a while and said that I would love too but scared that conflict will arise between my MIL and I as I have a SAHMIL (full time stay at home mother in-law) :D
I actually expressed this desire to my hubby a few times and test his reaction in our light conversations, knowing my hubby, he is always on the safe side which is - no definite answerlor. I also do not want to put too much pressure on him, we have been so used to live with two incomes, cutting the earning into halve sure will impact the family in one way or another. I believe finance is always the main factor to consider for families when deciding to switch to single income. I really salute families who made that decision, many career minded women have decided to turn into a SAHM, it's not an individual decision more of a family decision.
I believe the kids will be thrilled to hear that if I ever turn into a SAHM. I'm actually trying to secure a half day job i.e lecturing or tutoring which allows me to work and contribute to the society and at the same time more time to be with my children, guiding their studies and planning for their meals. Cater food is so boring.......
I welcome those who have gone through this phase and would like to share with me to either write to me or post in your blog.........people like Ling and Michelle. :D
