@Miss Molli,
I was a stay at home mother. Not because we could afford me to stay home, but because we couldn't afford for me not to be home. My husband was in school full time, we were living at the poverty level, but we managed. My children did not have the best of clothes, the newest toys, ( if they had any), but they were loved, cared for, fed, and they were taught the things they needed to know to make it in this life, and they have made it. They grew up learning how to work, how to budget money and to put themselves through school. Sometimes you have to make great sacrifices to be a stay at home mom.
