Hi Im looking for some advice / tips and or personal experiances from thoses of you who have had every intention on returning to work but have decided to become SAHM's instead. Im due to have my frist bub on 2nd March 2006 and thought that i would go back to work after a few months but im not really sure that i will be able to leave Bubba Squirt once he/she arrives. On the other hand im not too sure how i would handle being a SAHM either i have worked full time since finishing yr12 in 1998 (for the same company for 6+years) and have worked partime since i was 15 so ive never not had a job and it sort of scares me a little. Im entitled to 52 weeks unpaid mat leave and im just wondering if i take that then maybe use that time to make my decision. My dh has a good job and i know that we will get some help from centerlink so money is not my concern besides my parents survived with only dad working and my dh earns more then dad used to. Im just concerned that i will be lacking in adult compay and the brain stimulation as well as the inderpendace of earning a wage.
Any words of advice that you can offer will be great.
Thanks Shannon and Bubba Squirt
