SAHM or Working Mom?
Did you (or will you) stop working and be a Stay at Home Mom (SAHM)? Why or why not? Any regrets in your decision, like do you find yourself wanting to go back to work, or in the middle of a meeting do you wish you were home instead? What would you tell other mom-to-bes who are considering being a SAHM - do it or not?

Just a Positive Look on SAHMs.
As a mother of 4 (boy, girl, boy, girl); I would say that with my experiences of being a SAHM. I find myself lacking the adult friends that I know I should have. It seems to me that once my youngest get to school-age or preschool I'll get a chance at It. I still have a goal to further my education when the time is right. I get frustrated from time to time with the kids when I'm constantly cleaning after everybody (including the visiting in-laws) sometimes I just want to get away from it all lol. But when people comment on the fact that I have 4 kids and that it is a handful, I just think to myself about all the pleasures of being a SAHM. I have and will continue to make the most pleasant memories of the things that they do to make me laugh when I'm sad. I may lack in friendship of adults, but regrettably my kids have stolen my heart and I do ever want to change the way I'm doing things now. So if you are making the choice keep in mind whether or not you are a sentimental person or not. I am sentimental and I enjoy my kids more than I feel trapped like a maid.
