I have a 2.5 year old boy, he is an only child and has always been under my care. When he was born my husband and I decided that we didn't want to put him in daycare and I would be his primary caregiver until he is ready for elementary school, so I quit work (before having my son I was a career/working woman and loved it). Now that he is a toddler, he is extremely friendly, super active, sometimes very hyperactive and outgoing when it comes to meeting new people (both kids and adults) he does very well. I on the other hand feel like I'm a terrible SAHM,often feel isolated and depressed. Recently I was offered a job that sounds like a wonderful fit for me, but I can't shake off feeling guilty for even considering leaving him, my husband says he will support my decision either way, financially we are living the frugal life and the extra money wouldn't hurt, but it's not a total necessity either. My fear is that if I dont take this job an opportunity this good may not present itself 3/4 years from now.
I have an interview coming up next week so I have to make a final decision. What would you do in my place? please help!
