So I want to go back to work, probably only 2 or 3 days a weeks. I have two boys 2 and 3 who are already at daycare/learning center 2 days per week because I needed to sort out my PND and now they love to go so I don't want to take them out of something they love. Now I'm thinking about sending them another 2 days to make it 4 days and going back to work, I'm also studying so will still need those 1 or 2 days to myself. The problem I have with this is I don't need to work. We are one of the lucky few who are comfortable but not well off. I have conflicting thoughts because I feel like I'm lucky enough to be able to stay home with the kids so I should take advantage of that but I also feel a little trapped at home 7 days even though 2 days they are at kinda for about 5hrs and I would be a happier Mum if I could be out working.
What do you think about Mums working when they don't need to? Is it ok, wrong or a case of what makes the family happy is what should be done?
