I'm usually on the homeschool board, but recently a job that I would love to have was brought to my attention. I applied, went through two rounds of interviews, my references have been called and now I'm anxiously awaiting their decision. I have two boys ages 2.5 and 7. I have stayed home and even homeschooled. Meanwhile my dh has worked 2,3, even 4 jobs to make this possible. I am thinking I would like to take this position for a few years and pay off everything and then purchase the farm I have always wanted. Then I would be a SAHM mom again while my boys are in junior high and high school. I would pursue my masters and then doctorate during this time, so when they go to college I could teach at the college level. I would love to have my own work and income, but I would also like to be there for my boys. I need to get out of the house, but at what cost. Can you see where this is headed? Yes, no, yes, no. My dh just says "Are you sure this is what you want? If so, go for it. If not don't". I know he would love to give up his 'extra' jobs and focus on his teaching and I would love to be able to help him do that. Has anybody else done what I think I might be going to do? What advice can you give me? Thanks!
