Would You Rather….

Would you rather be a stay at home mother or a working mother?

I have been both at separate times and I wish I could be both at one time.

What’s the difference?

As a stay at home mother, I was and still am constantly catering to my children’s needs (as well as my husbands) and I hardly EVER get time to regain my sanity, I have a degree and I feel like I’m wasting it because I spent so much money and I have so much school debt so I feel that I need to work in the field that I love in order to accomplish what I love and pay my school loan. I am also not able to make money unless I work at home which still requires a lot of will power and patience. The bright side to staying at home is that I  get to see my children grow and mold them as I want and no one is expecting me  to turn something in at 5.

As a working mother, I would wake up and TRY not to wake up my children, work from 9 am to 9pm and then come home eat dinner with my family, get everyone ready for bed and go to sleep around 11ish. I hardly spent time with my children because I was always at work. I was home on the weekends but sometimes I worked on Saturdays. I have a housekeeper to take care of them but she doesn’t discipline my children so they have become spoiled because she does whatever they want. The bright side is that I was able to buy my children something every month, buy my self something and take care of my family financially, I was also able to have some me time during the day and socialize with others.

Again, I wish I could pick both, but I can’t, it’s either one or another.

So, from your experience and/or opinion, would you rather be a STAY AT HOME MOTHER or a WORKING MOTHER?

Comment below, I’d like to find out what you prefer and why.
