My plan is to be a sahm and work 5-10hrs per week from home until Sept, when I'll go back to the office two half days a week. This is partly because I'm not thrilled with my current job, but since they'll allow me to set this schedule I can't complain. However, I just saw a job on Monster that would be a great fit for me, and I think I'm going to apply, but on the off chance I got an offer, I don't know what I would do. I'm really not ready to go back to work anytime soon.
I guess it never hurts to apply. I don't quite have the experience level they want (although I do have the skillset - whohoo!), so it's probably a longshot anyway.
What do you ladies think?
I'm probably not the best one to ask for advice. I'm working full time and wishing with all my heart that I could be a SAHM! I say follow your heart and do what's going to be best for you. (A lot of help that was, I'm sure!)

That's very helpful! After I thought about it for awhile, I decided that babies need their mamas and they really don't care about more money and career advancement. There will be many jobs, but I've only got one kid. Plus, I really don't like to apply and/or interview under false pretenses. I know people do it, but if I know I'm not going to take the job I shouldn't waste their time.
Having said all that, I absolutely understand that every family is different and some mommies have to keep working, and some even prefer it. Kathryn, I wish you could stay home too!
I don't think I'm much of a help here either. What I have to say is you have to follow your heart. There is nothing greater than being at home with your children, and I really wish I could be a SAHM too. But the dilema is that if I don't have a job we dont have a home I can stay home at!! I say you should apply, then you have the option of taking the offer if you get one and who knows, the schedule might be workable at that job also.
