I am due with #2 in June! DS starts pre-k this fall :) I was a sahm for him his first 3 years of life then found a PT night shift job to help with the bills and get out of the house. While I was a sahm DH had a great paying job but he hated it. He eventually applied for a place he always wanted to work for and got it! But he makes min wage. When baby gets here I will have 4 weeks maternity leave. DH said if I wanted to, I could be a sahm again, which I'd love to be. He has been looking for a better paying job. One place accepted his online request and is awaiting an official application. We did well financially while I was a sahm with DS. How will it be different with 2? I plan to breastfeed and cloth diaper. We also rarely do things exceeding our basic budget.I guess i'm looking for encouragement. Some say I should go for it, some say it'll be a very bad idea. 4 weeks off of work just isnt enough, plus working night shift; I'll be overly exhaustedAnswer Question
