    I would. Especially if my choice was between my current job and SAHM. I am so under valued and unstimulated. I would love to be home with my little mate. Pre kids I never felt this way, but pre kids I never had a job as dull as my current one :s

    Ideally I would stay home till he went off to school then open a cafe by the water some where with good staff so I could work when I wanted to. Lol

    Nope. With my current 18 month old, a break is good for both of us

    Nope I would always choose to work in some capacity I love it. Having a choice I would probably drop down to 2 days a week from the 5 I do now though

    I'm not a WAHM, but I do stay home because we can afford to, but I will return to work when our youngest goes to full time school, there would really be no point in me staying home, and I'd like to use my brains for something haha.

    I am a hairdresser so I do a bit of work from home and I like doing that - it gives me a small amount of money and some socialising but I also work 11 hours a week in a salon and I definitely like the social side of it - it's so strange that after kids work feels like a break! - I only do Thursday nights and Saturdays and I will not increase that amount before my kids go to school, and once they are doing sports and extra curricular activities on weekends I will drop the Saturday and try and pick up work at home a bit more whilst they are at school

    I don't think so. I've only just started mat leave so even though I haven't experienced being a SAHM I'd imagine it's not something I could do full time. I enjoy having something to do and contributing financially

    If money wasn't an issue I still wouldn't be a 100% SAHM. Id probably get a different job in a different field with less hours though.

    Right now - YES! I don't enjoy my work and DS is a toddler and its do hard getting out of the house in the mornings.

    But, I was going stir-crazy when I was a SAHM, so I guess my ideal situation would be to work part-time in a job I love, or study, or work from home. But I can't just do nothing long-term. I need to use my brain.

    Yes definitely and in fact I currently am
    I did find though that when I was back at work I was a little more patient with DD on the days I was with her... however my solution to that now I am a SAHM is to still have DD in daycare 1 day a week and to have an agreement with DH that if either of us has a 'bad day' the other one will step in and take over as many of the evening duties as possible so the other gets some 'me' time. So far it has worked great.
