Re: Quitting a great job to stay home

I left a wonderful job making very good money to be home with my girls. It was an adjustment, both financially and emotionally. My identity was very much tied up in my profession, I absolutely LOVED what I did, but like you it was too much. I was always home late, working crazy hours, always devoted to the job. I miss it almost every single day, but now I can devote myself completely to the girls and their goings ons, it's better. I look forward to the day I can get back to it, but I'm happy now. My suggestion after looking at the finance aspect of it, is to look at the emotional aspect of it.
