Now that you're a SAHM, do you want to go back to work?

I have been both; I worked and had a nanny with my first two and when I conceived my third, we decided to tighten the budget and I'd stay home. Those years with my kids and having a fourth were amazing. I have gone back to work in a school setting so my schedule is similar to my kids. I was home for nearly 10 years and went back to work when my youngest was 6-7. I do understand you desire. Is there a way for you to work part time? Or volunteer? Even a job outside of your primary field can be satisfying. I will never regret taking the time away from working. My mom was the one who really helped my decide to be a SAHM; she told me when the kids are older and gone I won't regret not working, but I might regret working and missing those magical times. It's a conflict many moms feel. Grateful to be able to manage staying home financially and still wanting to be fulfilled by your work.
