    We own our own business, we earn alot but it goes into savings.
    We are in the higher income bracket.

    My DH is a Diesel fitter and is on roughly $100,000 for a job in the city and is home every day at 5!!! Yay! We tried mining for a while and he was on alot more but the time away really was not worth it to us. He also just changed jobs to one with less hours as he was getting home so late and working 6/7 days a week. We both realised that we would rather be on less money but have more time as a family. I think the big $$ look tempting but really they come with other sacrifices that we just aren't willing to make while dd is so young!

    No DP here, but I am a senior lawyer for a government body and I currently earn 6 figures. I say currently because I am on a 12 month contract so who knows what will happen after that.

    DH is in the army 10+yrs and earns 75k pa + housing allowance + Medical + car allowance. I'm a medical scientist (3yrs Uni plus 2yrs on the job training and HUGE exam) and when I worked FT would make 75k pa in QLD (NSW and VIC pay more) plus OT if I wanted it... But I work PT. We are comfy. My work can be exceedingly boring so I have completed my teaching qualifications so that when the kidlets are in school so will mummy.

    We're in Sydney too and I earn about the same as DP but as a nanny. Totally not possible to stay at home for very long if we want to live close to our parents and the city.

    The only upside is that even though I will have to go back to work, I can do so as a mummy nanny so I don't have to put my baby in care. And DP usually has 4 days on, 5 days off, so on the days she's off and I'm working she can stay at home with the babe too.

    Dh is an operator in mines, has started on base salary of $95k with potential to earn a heck of a lot more.He works 7days on 7off and works out to be more time with us as thats only 6months a year of actual work and we have more family time together then his previous job of truck driver. I enjoy my 7days with the kids and dh enjoys it too. Works for us!

    His traineeship was combine certificate 3/4 in Laboratory Practices- the same ones they use for pathology lab. Then he went on to specialise in geotechnical stuff. What he earns is nothing compared to what other blokes he works with earn- the are earning up 4 or 5 grand a week! But they are on site, where as DH is in the Lab as Supervisor. He will be getting a big pay rise in the new financial year though.
