My daughter is 19 months old. I have 16 months off on matrnity leave with her – I am now back working 2 and a half days a week. my dilema is should I work more or stay with what I am. My hubby works 6 nights a week and I feel bad that he takes the burden of working so much on. We are not struggling however we live in a very small house. my problem is I feel I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. Do i – increase my hours to work and earn more but miss out on doing things with my kids? or continue doing what we are doing and live in our tiny house? right now the way things are I am involved with my 8 yr olds school I am able to go to schol events – but we are living on top of each other? argh I am so confused??

  • I’d choose time with the kids.


  • If I am in your shoes I will spend the time with the kids. They grow up so quick and you can not recreate those special time later on.


  • Enjoy your kids while you can.


  • spend time with your kids while there young. You can go back 2 work when their older.
