I did go back to work after my older children were at school, it was hard but had to be done to get us out of trouble. Then number four came along, things were different and I stayed home with her until she was seven. I had another go going back to work but found it harder this time as my skills we not as a good as needed. Found some work to do from home, a hobby turning some money. Another surprise of twins this time and no even with one who took a while to settle I am staying home this time. Still doing craft work for extra money and my sanity.
The things you have to ask is staying home going to be enough for you, will you find something that will suit the hours you want to work. Make a list of both sides and then see if one side is better then the other.
