How I am going to become a SAHM

For those non-mom types, SAHM = Stay at home mom.

I am desperately trying to figure out how I can stay home with Abby when my maternity leave is up.  The thought of leaving her with a stranger so I can make a few bucks is just about killing me.  It would be different if I thought I was going to make a significant financial contribution to our household budget, but by the time I pay for child care I will really only be making a few hundred dollars.  That of course is our grocery money and my spending money, but still!  ARGH!  Stupid debt load!

My ideas so far are to open my house up to babysitting and to get back into selling AVON.

Any ideas from the interwebs?

Hi Leslie, I came across your blog and thought I'd comment on what I do.

I am a wellness coach, a nutrition educator, and a SAHM. I love helping families get healthy. When people can't figure out how to eat right I offer Juice Plus as a solution. Have you heard of it?

Juice Plus is an extrodinary fruit and vegetable concentrate that has been put in a capsule and a gummy for kids. I wouldn't go a day without it.

I was attracted to this business because I need Juice Plus and it made sense to me that other people would to. I am a mom and I knew I could make a big difference working part time with Juice Plus and I'd still be able to spend the time I wanted with my family.

Now I'm able to share Juice Plus with my friends and family and make enough to stay home with my kids.

If you'd like some more information, I'd love to share with you.
