I apologize for the faux paus, posting about income, but it seems to be the only way I can truly get an idea of whether I can be a SAHM or not. I am not yet pregnant but I am thinking ahead on this. I would love to be a SAHM when the time comes but my DH has recently decided to change careers and become a teacher, so he will be LUCKY to start off making $40-$45k a year (in our area).
Many of my friends that are SAHM say that you always find a way to make it work etc, but I just dont see how it will be possible for us. We live in a relatively HCOL area so the thought of making ends meet on around $2k a month seems downright impossible.
Also, right now we are working hard to pay off some debt and get some very necessary home improvements done so we really need both of our current incomes to meet these goals.....we cant save my income now to use later when Im not working.
Any advice? Anyone in a similar situation and making it work?
