Eh, that hasn't worked for me. Apparently, taking care of my home, "to my heart's content", is still doing as little as possible. However, I am able to do other things I slacked off on during the early child years. Housework, just isn't one of them.

Plus, the hours the kids are in "fulltime" school is about equal to half the hours of a fulltime job (Commute included).

I don't care at all what others choices are.

I did go back to work when my youngest was in school full time. Like you pointed out when one is in school only 2-3 hours it is not really job friendly. But I did enjoy all of that free time that I did not previously have.

I did go back to work when my youngest was in school full time for various reasons. I found that I was bored having all of that free time all day every day. The money that I could bring in by working helped my family more than me being at home did.

First let me say that no one else should care whether your SAH or WOH. If it works for you and your family, go for it.

If you worked nights like the poster who posted that did you could sleep until 3pm -- she doesn't get HOME until 9:15 in the morning.

Yikes! It would kill me to have to get up at 5:20. That is the middle of the night, woman! We usually get up around 9.

Eh I doubt most people really care if you work or don't.
