Re: What Lengths Have You/Would You Go To To Stay Home?
I don't know that there's anything that would make me stay home...at least not FT. Right now, I do wish I had more time to spend w/ DD & that the time I do spend w/ her had fewer other demands. However, DP & I each make pretty good incomes. I have no desire to SAH once DD (&/or future kids) are in school, but I fear that staying home FT would take me away from my profession, & that when I was ready to return to work, I would have lost skills, a professional network, and a certain amount of relevance. Ideally, I'd like a PT position...especially since DD is doing so great in her DC/Preschool class that I'd still want to keep her in PT, even if I were able to stay at home.
