  1. She makes some very valid points, especially about wanting to work part time, and keeping a toe in the water. I quit my job after my third child was born, but I definitely do not regret it. I think the biggest point I’d like to make about being a stay at home mom is that it is *crucial* to have some “me” time on a regular basis. I wouldn’t be opposed to working part time at all, but the way I look at it is, every time I make at my part time job would go to pay for daycare for my youngest (older two are school aged). So why bother? lol

  2. I think you need to do what is right for you and your family. I know that once my brother and I were in school my mom went back to work but was always home right about the same time that we got home. She did it because she needed time for herself and I respect that. I look back now as an adult and I never felt that she wasn’t there – heck, once I got older I probably wished she was there less 😉

    As I’m not a mother right now I’d have to see how I feel when I have my own kids.

  3. It really just depends on what is right for each family.. there’s no right or wrong. Keep in mind that she was a stay-at-home mom. If she had been a full time working mom all those years she may have a different perspective now and wished she had been able to spend more time with her kids. The grass is always greener kind of thing. But really, it definitely just depends on what is best for each individual family. I wouldn’t dream of going to work full time right now because I have never been career minded and always dreamed of staying at home and I would barely be able to cover day care for two kids anyway. But I say whatever works for each individual mom is great!

  6. Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this
    site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress
    because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another
    platform. I would be great if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.
