What are your opinions of if a mom should work outside the home or not? I know most will probably say what I keep hearing it is different for every person; and I get that. So here is my situtation and I would love some advice.
I am a mother to 3 boys ages 10, 5 and 1. I stayed at home once I got pregnant with our last child and just returned back to working full time about 10 months ago; my husband also works full time. Since then I feel like our family has been turned upside down. We have only 2 hours in the evening each night to try and see each kid, do dinner, laudry, cleaning, baths, baseball, homework, and bedtime. Needless to say half of those dont get done and atleast 1 kid gets neglected - the one that is not the most demanding that night.
My youngest son has been a very difficult baby since day one and we love him none the less but now the doctor suspects that he might have Asperger Syndrome. We are going to see a specalist next week.
In the end I feel like I need to stay home but my husand says he hates having all the financial presure on his shoulders only and wants me to keep working. He makes enough for our main bills each month, but it would be tight meaning we cut back on any extra stuff.
