I always assumed I would return to work once my youngest started school. This is still several years away but the close I get to that time, the less ideal it seems. Financially we can afford for me to continue to stay at home, we budget and are frugal, however extra income would also allow us to do more too. I still want to be at home with the children before & after school, but also on the holidays. My career has been on hold for many years already and I do worry I’ll struggle to go back to the professional working world. Mums who have continued to stay at home while their kids are in school, is this something you’d encourage? Are there reasons you’d change your circumstances if you could? The mums who have returned to work now the kids are in school, do you have any regrets? Would you go back to being a SAHM if you could?
