Re: "I Want to Be a Mommy"
We are lucky in our family.
Due to circumstances beyond our control (read being screwed over by a bunch of people with a "unique set of morals"), my better half is essentially unemployable in the area.
So the decision for her to be a stay at home Mum was forced on us, and we didn't have to worry aboutbalancing work and family.
It's incredible how our kids are compared to those around us stuck in daycare all day...either it's being interacted with all day, or the lack of vaccinations.
It's so noticable, that the pressure is on her now to send the kids to daycare to "learn to socialise with new kids" (replace that with learn to be a bully, hit people, snatch, bite etc)
