    I wonder if fathers go through the same process of questioning whether to go back to work or not, part time or full time, etc.

    I know it never crossed my husband mind.

    I actually ask my DH if he wanted to stay at home.

    (the answer was not repeatable ) but it was a discussion we had

    I needed to return to work when DS was 10 months for my own sanity, not so much for money. I tried doing all the mum things (swimming lessons, kindy gym, rhyme time etc) but all people talked about was their kids. I also just couldn't stay home because it just wasn't for me. I think even if I was super rich I would still work 2-3 days a week because being a SAHM is really not for me.

    I will return maybe as early as 6 months two days a week for stimulation and my own sanity too. In my job I will never have the option to be a permanent sahm because we are required to do a minimum 3 months equivalent full time over 5 years or need to do refresher update studies.

    If I didn't have to then I definitely wouldn't go full time but part time yes. I do think sometimes I would like to be working part time

    Oh my goodness, yes!!!

    I've been a SAHM for nearly 8 years now, and will be for about another 4 years. It's important for me to be home with my children until they are all in school, and I'm now studying full-time on top of that, so it's not realistic for me to work outside of the home yet. But as soon as DS3 is in school and I've graduated Uni, I will be in paid employment in a freaking heart beat! I cannot wait!

    I don't need to work, financially, but far out I'm ready to get away from days spent with children and have some adult company

    I would go back part time- that would be my ideal.
