Stay at home moms Vs Working moms - Thoughts?

We all know that all moms are equal, whether you need / want to work or choose to stay at home with your kids :)
I know for myself, I had to work a total of maybe a year 1/2 during my 6 1/2 years of being a mother - a little while in 2009 / 2010 and again in 2013 /2014 for 9 months total. 

While I loved working, I enjoy being a stay at home mom even more, but now that my kids are both in school it's not as fun obviously as they're not home til after 3:45pm during the week. I am not due until June 2, so I won't have another little one til probably mid to late May as I never go on time.


If you're a stay at home mom, do you enjoy that one on one time with your child / children?

If you're a working mom, do you enjoy working or would you rather stay at home with your child / children?


  1. I have both sides of this. I work from home with my kids at home. It is hard but I enjoy being with my kids.

  2. I was home with both of my children for the first 3 months. I valued that time and needed it. However I realize that I need adult stimulation as well. I was tired of being in the house although we also went out. I need to be more than just a mom. Working makes me appreciate and value myself more and my time with the kids. I have a great job so I'm still at every awards program, field trips and any other activities.

  3. I am a stay at home and I enjoy the extra time I get to spend with my daughter. My mom was a SAHM too so I wanted the same for my daughter.

  4. I am so happy for you! I did both with my two children. I think it is a personal choice only you and your spouse can make together based off what works for you and your family. I wish you all the best!
