  • Ummm, never? lol

    Naa, that's just me --- BUT... if I DID want to go back to work, I (again, just me personally) would go back part-time once my little one was in preschool & then full-time once he was in school. If you're just getting cabin fever, you could take on a part-time job or do volunteer work @ night or on weekends when your SO is home.

    I wouldn't put my child in daycare.

  • For me... Never. My kids are 30 months and 16 months. I do miss the adult time but I'm glad I can be home with them. I have a full time income from my home business so I don't need to worry about that either.
