I don’t really remember if I ever shared the story of how/why I became a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM) about 10 years ago. Wow….did I just say 10 years ago? Time flies, right? I didn’t prepare for it. It just sort of happened one day in October 2005. I remember the day because it was my mother-in-law’s birthday. That wasn’t the exact day I left my job, but it was the beginning of the end of my world in corporate America.
About two months later in mid December, I was home full-time with my 11.5 month old daughter living in Brooklyn with none of my blood family within 500-600 miles of me. Fortunately, my husband is an attorney and we didn’t have to worry about losing my full-time income.
But when I asked other SAHM’s what they wish they would have done before they decided to stay home to raise their child/ren, most of them said they wish they had saved more money.
Here’s a post I wrote that gives you a few things to consider before you become a SAHM. Some of you maybe able to stay home now, but if you’re not pregnant yet and plan to become pregnant soon, this is a good read for you.
