We're facing some very difficult financial situations lately and I was wondering at what point I sacrifice being at home with our son. If my son were school age, or even weaned, it wouldn't be as much of an issue, but with him still nursing and 17 months old, I just don't feel comfortable working yet. My husband is currently working 2 jobs and it still isn't enough right now. I asked him what his thoughts were and he said he'd rather work 3 jobs than me go back to work (man, I've very lucky). Honestly, I think I'd rather sell my house and go back to our humble trailer house beginnings than go to work.
Anyway, I was curious what you other stay at home moms think about this. How important is being with your children to you and where would you draw the line?
