Can You Stay at Home?
For some, this can be a touchy subject. There are wives and mother’s who have the desire to stay at home, there are others who don’t, and then there are some who simply can’t afford to stay at home. Again, there are men/husbands who want their wife at home, some who insist on them working, and some who let their wives choose what’s best for them. And also single moms who have no choice either. We all have different situations! I’m not judging whatsoever!
Lots of issues can be so frustrating, too, I know! Just let this article be an inspiration if you are toying with the idea of staying at home.
'Do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things of life.' ~Lord Houghton
I consider a happy home in the true sense of the word one of the greatest of blessings. How important is the work of the housemother and homemaker who creates the home! There can be no happiness there unless the wheels of the domestic machinery are oiled by loving care and kindness to make them run smoothly, and the noblest work a woman can do is training and rearing her children.
Suffrage, the right of woman to vote; will it not take women from the home? I am afraid the home will then suffer in consequence. Will man accord woman the same reverence she has received in the past? Should she have equal political rights? A race lacking respect for women would never advance socially or politically. I think women could not have a more important part in the government of the land than in rearing and educating their children to be good, useful citizens.
In what nobler work could women engage than in work to promote the comfort and well-being of the ones they love in the home?
Mrs. Mary Mason, 1802-1881

One of the first things you have to figure out when you realize that you want to stay home with your kids is whether or not you can afford to do so. You are probably used to living on two incomes, so making the switch to a single income may not be easy. However, it may not be as hard as you think.
