See the attached article for some scientific proof of what some of us have been fortunate experience first-hand as we moved from the workforce to fulfilling our traditional roles as wives and mothers.
This is an interesting article. I get so many negative commets from people when they learn I am a SAHM to a 7 year old and 3 year old triplets (and I must be crazy to want more children)! Before becoming a SAHM, I taught full-time at a university, many people were inpressed by my job, but I was not fulfilled. When I got pregnant with my triplets, I decided I was going to become a SAHM. My life is a very happy one. My husband shows just as much respect for my “job”, as I show for his. He recognizes that my taking care and raising our children full-time is just as important as what he does. Why is is so hard for some people to understand that there are women out there who LOVE and CHERISH being able to stay at home, raise our children, teach them, and watch them grow! I would trade my life for anything!

After that wonderful post I’m assuming you slipped on your keyboard and meant to say you would NOT trade your life for anything!
OOPS!!! Yes, I did mean to say “I would NOT trade my life for anything!!”
