    Lol. All I can picture is him in the speedos, oil in hand

    As it's only one line not much to go on. Not very nice though. I'm trying to lay the foundations for well adjusted, happy, confident future adults. I do intend to return to working soon but do not think the early years are the best time to do that.

    Lol. Welcome to bubhub Jonsey, that was a brilliant typo! I hope you enjoy it here

    On a more serious note... I've been thinking about this stuff a bit lately, as my children are getting older and will both be in school by 2015.

    I'm starting to realise just how much they will still benefit from having a parent in the home, and hubby and I are wondering how we are going to juggle it all with him working an hour away and no family nearby... add to that the rising cost of childcare/difficulty finding after school hours care/school holidays care.... it's all feeling really hard to juggle. Maybe it's easier in reality than it sounds but I doubt it.

    How do the working mums and dads in our situation do it?

    It's kind of expected that SAHMs should go back to work once their youngest is in school, but I can see perhaps even more benefits of having a parent around then, not less.

    I dunno... does anyone know where I am coming from?

    I dunno, I read it more as "if you want a full time wage go to work" more than anything else.

    I want to go on the record as saying, I'm not a TA fan at all. But I don't think it was really saying much at all. Plus, that's a quiz, not an article based on policies. They haven't really asked the hard questions.....

    absolutely and school hours dont match up with most people's working hours anyway so you have to do after school care or find someone to look after them.. maybe staying at home is more of a benefit to everyone then too
