I did it!

Postby wife4life » Wed May 18, 2011 3:25 pm

I am officially a SAHM. I told my principal on Monday (I am a special education teacher) that I would not be returning in the fall. She had me sign a resignation letter...so it's official. I am freaking out, as we have never lived off of one income. It will be extremly tight, and we will have to cut some major corners...but I think it will be worth it in the end. I am looking forward to sharing this journey with you laides! Now, let the fun begin!

Yay, I am happy you are able to stay at home! It IS worth cutting corners. We just bought a new house (moved from a mobile home) and we do have a house payment and will have to budget tightly for a while, especially if we have more kids, but it is totally worth it for us :D. We feel that for our family, we'd rather our kids had Mom at home with them, than the extra things that the money could buy.
