So my DH and I had a serious conversation today about TTC today. We agreed that we will begin in 1-2 months. I was so excited to hear that he was on board with the schedule that we had previously talked about. He then completely shocked me ladies. He told me that he didn’t want me to work for a year and wanted me to stay home and raise our baby. Ladies, you don’t understand how this made me feel. I thought that I would stay home no more than three months and then get back to work as an attorney. I am so happy that I get to spend as much time with our little one as possible seeing as though being a lawyer is very demanding and often non-mommy friendly field. Most importantly I am happy that he is in agreement.
So why and I scared, I’m sure your asking? Hubby makes a good living however he is very rigid when it comes to our spending. His biggest fear is us being “broke” as he calls it and living beyond our means. I don’t want the baby and I to be a financial burden to him. He told me that he is sure he can manage and I have faith in him. However, I don’t want him stressed out either about money. We do have a savings with about 15k-20k, however we only use it for serious emergencies. Any ladies in a similar situation? How did you feel about being a SAHM even if only for short period of time? Please share.
