Re: Does anyone actually LIKE being a WOHM?

I am heading back to work next month, as a part-time WOHM. I have been a SAHM for 5 years, and I feel a little guilty that I am excited to go back to teaching. But, really, part of the reason I became a teacher was for the hours, vacations, and flexibility to be with my family. I mean, if they have a snow day, odds are I do too.

My SAHM friends are excited for me, but I know they are wondering 'why now?'. I just had DS2 in May, and he will be 4 months. I SAH for the older two, what's another 2 years, right? Really, I am ready to go back. I am a little burnt out at SAH with my kids, and going back PT (for now) is the best situation. A friend is going to come to my house and watch the kids in the morning, and the school is 4 miles from my house. My hours are 7am-12pm, and I will be home in time for lunch and to meet the oldest off the bus. For me, this is the best off all worlds. But I'll let you know how I really feel in October.
