If I SAH, I'd have more time to volunteer, especially once my younger son is in full time school, and I'd have more time to smell the roses.

At this point, the only good reason for me to woh, would be if we decided for younger DS to go to private school and we didn't want to change our spending/savings patterns.

I've done both SAH and WOH and I think for me and my son - WOH is the better option for both of us.


I drop my son off at school in the morning and dh picks him up from afterschool care - He's in after school care for

I would get up at 6:30 vs. the 4:45 that I get up now.....that helps alot on those nights when Alyssa has been up in the middle of the night.
