A recent study by the Pew Research Center says that more working moms say they would rather stay at home.
I can understand why.
My husband has a very stressful job that has required him to work many hours. One of the people on his small team is a working mom. She has two little girls who she leaves with her mother-in-law. I cannot imagine having to work that stressful job, then go home to make dinner and take care of a house and two girls. I wonder how on earth she does it.
Many, many times I have been so thankful that I can stay at home and still contribute to the family finances. Right now, it's a small contribution, but it's still a contribution, and will grow over time.
I have the privilege of homeschooling my four children, helping my family stay healthy, and contribute to family finances all at the same time. It's a wonderful place to be.
