Mother guilt - it's a shocker isn't it?!! Hard to escape from it... it seems to follow me around...
All the best in your decision making! These things are really tough.

I would be the bread winner, and get DH to work part time.

If I was in your shoes, I'd let DH take the reins for awhile and work part time/be a SAHD. I wouldn't be asking to change the terms of my new job until I was well established in the role, maybe a year or more in the job. I love being at home with my DD too so I get not wanting to miss out but it sounds like you've landed an amazing opportunity so I'd grab it and run with it for awhile, particularly since you have a supportive partner who is willing and able to pick up the slack on the home front too. It's hard to know what's best but maybe it's worth trying for awhile at least to see how it works?
