    I agree Amber. I only work 2 days now and found when I worked full time that the time I spent with my kids was really positive and joyful. When I work less I get more easily exhausted by the kids and there's more housework with the kids trashing the house everyday.

    Don't get me wrong, I am happy working only 2 days. I'm just saying that I don't think working mothers miss out on as much as they think. :-)

    I am returning to work full-time soon. I am tired of not being able to afford stuff I need. I'll be much better off financially and will be able to have a better life. DS will go to daycare in the city too. Big change for us! Suburbia to City living again.

    its like a vicious cycle! I'm finding it very monotonous at this point... And I only have one child! But in saying that, if I could earn a lot just working PT I would choose that over FT, better balance plus I'm studying too.
