Hi, I hope this is the right board to post this question, I am new & happy to see most SAHM & WOHM respect each others choices. How could we judge each other we all know that staying home & working out of the home are both difficult in different ways? In fact many of us have done both.
I had a great job & gave it up to stay home because I had too, the commute was too long & there were too many daycare issues, but it broke my heart to leave. I love being home with my kids now but miss my job & doubt I'll get that position back unless I go back in the next year or 2 which is possible since my daughter will be in 1st grade soon.
It is so hard to decide! To choose a career or another baby! When you are older & look back which would you regret more, sacrificing your career, or not having another baby? Kids are so wonderful, but having a career is very fulfilling too! But maybe I'm wrong, maybe I could be out of the workforce for 10 years & reenter in my late 40s, and not have to start from the beginning again?
any advice would help, thanks so much!
