As you kids get older and are in school all day, do you find yourself wishing you could go back to work or do you want to stay home til you kids are in highschool or out of school completely?

Do you find your reasons for staying home harder to justify to others (maybe yourself too) as your kids approach teenage years or no you have no problems with your choice to stay home as long as your kids are in school??

Welcome to my daily struggle(lol) I want to go back to work so bad but my dh just got a big promotion which requires him to travel every week for 4 days at a time. I ideally would like something from 9am-2pm but those kind of jobs in healthcare are pretty non-existant. So,here I am. Stuck between doing what I know is right for my family right now, and doing what is right for me.

Yes I can see where you'd have a problem. Maybe there's a job you can do from home..medical transcribing maybe. That way you can work and be at home.
