  2. It makes me feel better when I have someone there for me, as it makes me feel supported.

stay-at-home mom

When you are a 'stay-at-home-mom,' it means that you are home with your children full time and that you do not do paid work outside of the home.

Notice the following:

  1. I did not enjoy being a stay-at-home mom, as I felt very lonely.
  2. She is quite happy being a stay-at-home mum, I think.

Notice the following:

  1. I am a lot happier now that I know that I am financially stable.
  2. We were a lot more financially stable when both me and my husband worked.

  2. She said that she wouldn't mind if more people came to the party as she had made plenty of food.
