There is nothing wrong with being a full time parent! I barely work as it is, maybe ten hours a week. I don't make any sort of real money and would have to be dragged kicking and screaming back to full time work. I really think there is a ton of value in having one parent be the on call, full time parent.
IMO, When people shame the fundies for 'not doing anything' it isn't for being a full time stay at home mom. It is just that most of them do it because they really haven't had the opportunity to make the decision for themselves to see if they want to. They been purposefully kept uneducated and literally pregnant again and again so they can't work even if they wanted to. Look at Jill for instance. You can't tell me she loves being a SAHM like Kendra or Anna might. And Abbie seems to actually enjoy nursing and I don't see why she didn't at least try to work pre baby ( well, pre HG ) and make some AR connections. They don't have the choice or the ability to see that they have a choice outside of getting pregnant every other year.
What bothers me about Abbie is that she is naive to say " oh ill go back when the kids are grown" when she has no intentions of stopping any time soon, so that literally will be in 30 or so years! Most women who choose to go back can do so in less time because they don't have 10 or 12 kids, and their time out of the work force is much less
And I think we all know she really has no intention of working, or JD won't let her. If that is her choice, great! I really enjoy being home most of the time, and hope I get to do part time for much longer. Since I've stopped working a full time office job, I'd only do it again if I 100% had to.
