So as not to send the other thread off track, I thought I would start a new one.
I always assumed I would go back to work when my youngest starts school in 2015, but lately I have been realising that there would be a lot of benefit to me being 'at home'.
On one hand the extra income would be appreciated (well, what would be left anyway lol!) and it would be so nice to do something that was 'mine'.
On the other hand, I would love to be the one that is there for *those* conversations on the way home from school, for my kids to come home to their own house to do their homework etc. I would love to be able to do reading etc at their school and I am sure I would fill in the time very easily. As their life gets busier so does mine anyway.
