Kudos to you for supporting mrswbill’s decision to stay home! An unsupportive hubby makes that decision difficult for a lot of women.

WBill Jr. appreciates it as well. I don't care how good the daycare is, they won't do as well as Mom and Dad. People who think otherwise are just massaging their consciences, AFAIC.

Of course, we don't have a lot of the things that many people I work with do...no laundry service, lawn service or cleaning service. We rarely eat out, and Mrs WBill shops pretty carefully.

Frankly, to be brutally honest, my wife just can't make enough money to have her working be worthwhile. By the time you subtract taxes, daycare, and commuting...it just ain't worth it. Throw in occasional business lunches, new clothes, less time for the family, less time for "careful" shopping and meals.... we'd be in the hole, just for her to work. Foolish.

I work with a lot of Moms and Dads who "have to" work. At least they think that they do. I think that they'd be surprised how much more money they'd have if they dropped out of the workforce.
