32. we didn't want to put our baby in daycare
so I stayed home for four months. The bills were just too much for us, so I have been working nights waitressing, at least this way we still don't have to pay for daycare. I'm exhausted though. I take care of baby all day, and then go to work, sometimes not getting home until 11 pm. Hubbie works all day, and takes care of baby while I'm at work, but she goes to bed around 8 and sleeps through until 4:30am - 7 am, and that's when I get up. IF I could, my choice would be to be a stay at home mom. I think it can make a huge difference in a child's life,(mom stayed with us until I went to 1st grade) and I actually think (though I might get flamed for this)that a parent (be it mom or dad) should stay home with the kids. I think this is part of the reason why the generations coming up behind me have some problems (work ethics,behavioral issues). Unfortunately, for most people, staying at home is not an option because of money. One income just can not support a family anymore.
