I would still go back but probably not as soon as I will be.
Actually I'm sure he would love to be a SAHD and do all of that himself.
A-He doesn't think that day care and after school care is the best option for our kids if we can avoid it- he would rather they be home with a parent or carer and have more time as a family where possible.
B- financially it makes almost no sense. Since he is the main income earner, any job I get will predominantly be funding our day care and school care fees. As well as the added stress of getting everyone fed and dressed and out the door before 8am and the rush to get dinner ready of an evening.
So he would prefer me not to work. But in no way is he controlling my choice. If I wanted to work he would be 100% on board and happy with that as he wants me to be happy. Luckily enough - I'm very happy working at home and spending my time with the kids.
If money was no problem and both kids were in school then no I wouldn't. Would love to have time to myself, focus on garden, cooking, housework, kids activities. It would be great!
Reality is that dh may possibly lose his job and I may have to go back full time . Too risky for us with just one income earner and he earns double my full wage.
Yeah maybe 2 days/ nights per week for say 3-5 hours for a bit of extra cash
Well, I'm back at work! I got a promotion & transfer. Absolutely loving it so far!
