Okay so the conversation has come up for me to be a stay at home mom. me and my husband have a 1 year old little boy. He feels that we shouldn't get a babysitter. But doesn't want to stay home himself. I love my little boy and want to be with him 24/7 but i've grown up being taught that i need to provide for myself. So i'm just really torn. Opinions on stay at home moms?

I'm in the same boat as you, I have been a stay at home mum since my daughter was born 10 months ago, my partner works 6 days a week to support us and it works out, I work in a bar some Saturday evenings just for some extra money. My thoughts are that the next few years are going to be full of precious moments that I don't want to miss, I will put my daughter in to a nursery when she's two, there's plenty of time to build a career but kids grow up so quickly and I want to be there and cherish the time I have with her as a little one, not rush her in to preschool. Plus, the amount of money I'd get working would just be enough to cover her day care anyway so there's no point.
If your that desperate to go to work, go part time and get a good babysitter who is flexible and whom can give your little one undivided attention without other kids or get a devoted relative to have him for a few hours every few days. Good luck!1
