After my second son was born I was stressing about going back to work but knew we couldn't survive on my H's salary alone. He also wasn't happy at work so I modivated him to find a better job he would enjoy. He had some contacts that wanted to hire him so that helped. I went back to work for 3 months and then quit once he started the new job. It's not for everyone and I have the urge to punch people when they ask me what I do all day, non SAHM moms. But I love it most days, sometimes we just need a break and it's important to make time for yourself. That's one of the hardest things but it's wonderful to be able to stay at home in my opinion.
