Stay At Home Mom
I am a new user to this website. I just found this website when I was online searching for information on being a good homemaker. I have read some of the topics on this website and I am very happy to have found this website. Here is my concern. I am leaning towards being a stay-at-home mom. My problem is that I feel that I have to have a young baby to be worthy of staying at home. I have a son and he is going to be 13 years old this year. I want to stay at home because my family is my #1 priority. Not a job, career or money. But whenever I hear anyone talk about being a stay at home mom, the next thing I hear is that they have small children. Are there any parents out there, who came to the realization that they wanted to stay at home for their family but did not have small kids?. I feel like if someone ask me what do I do and I tell them that I am a homemaker but I do not have small kids at home, they will say to me that you don't have a child at home during the day, so why are you not working until he comes home. I know this is long, but I fight with this in my thinking. Please help.
