If so, you aren't alone, according to the Pew Research Center.  They found that while there is an increase in women who prefer to work full time, they blame it on the economy.  They found that a good portion of men and women would prefer that the mom works part time, that it's better for the children.

As the conversation about work-life balance continues, the most important part of the study may lie in the agreement on one thing. Regardless of who brings home more bacon or who helps with more homework, moms and dads equally reported feeling stressed about balancing the increasing demands of both work and family life -- and that's not good for anyone.
