I was really excited to read the "Financial Strategies for Stay at Home Parents" article because that is a situation in our near future, and I am gathering all the advice I can find. Unfortunately, it's written by a Canadian blogger, which is wonderful, but some of the advice he offers doesn't translate to life in the United States.

Do you have any tips/suggestions/advice (or links to the same) for American couples in the planning stages of parenthood?
