While as a SAHM I've made the decision to give my full time to B. There are of course compromises. For instance, we really need to be more mindful of our budget. I've had to let go of a housekeeper and J brings lunch to work most days(it's actually better since his options for buying lunch are really slim). However reading this article about sharing responsibilities at home and the kids made me realize how lucky I am that J really does help me out. He gives me an extra hour or 2 in the morning and gets home most days in time to help get B ready for bed. It's been almost a year since B entered our lives and it's been quite an adventure for both us.
