if financially tight, then have to go out work and earn $ .
Sg, everything also ex, difficult to be a stay at home mum nowadays compared to older generations where most mums is stay at home mum.
some will think, 1 kid is never enough, 2 is just nice.
some say, 1 only, very lonely, in future she has to suffer to feed both parents, etc.
everyone has different thinking and mindset, most impt is, you think you can do it and work towards it.
no choice as a mum, we want the best of everything for our kids, even work till so xinku, also have to tahan..
reality sucks most of the time.
my hubby gonna venture to property sales which im already doing part time. take it as an extra income.
main job still goes on for basic expenditures. when the property sales stable, we both will quite main job and work together.
hopefully, our plans works well. when $ comes in well, then i plan for no.2.
but you see, some family, only the hubby working, stay at home mum with 1-3kids, income like $2k, they still can survive.
but some ( ok, me ), combine income, $7k+ per month, still not enough. dont know where $ goes to.
think its more like, our habit on standard of living and high expectations which mold us on our "spending habits".
