Would any of you SAHMs leave your kids at home to work contract overseas??

If you got the opportunity to work overseas making 4-6 thousand monthly, would you consider leaving you child/ren and DH to go make that $$$?!?!
I dont think I could.

  • I would think that moms in the US who work outside the home might be interested at that price themselves!! As for me, nope. It's not that I don't think I could go over seas, I wouldn't period.

  • No. Never. Unless it was the very last resort for money & my children would starve or something without me doing it..
    My DH could possibly double our income right now working on tug boats with my BIL but we passed because it would take my dh away from us for 1-3wks at a time... Family time & being together is more important than anything. Right now dh works from 5am-1pm, the money is good (not great, but we get by on it well) and we get to spend lots of time together.
