This includes principal,interest, taxes and insurance(PITI) Do you think we are pushing it a little far? I'm so nervous about this payment...

If you don't have any other debt (other than utilities, which really isn't a "debt", really, any more than groceries are a "debt"), then I think you will be fine.
However, I think before I made any decisions one way or the other, I would take a month and track all of your expenses - everything from a coffee at Starbucks to your gas and electric bills, and factor in things like clothing and other shopping allowances.Â Then, once you see what you spend on all of that, look to see if it's less than what you have left after the house payment, and if so (or if it's too close to it for comfort), if there's any area where you can cut back.Â
Based on that, THEN you can decide if you need the part time job.Â

What condition are your cars in? What ages are your kids, and how many, will you be able to put money away for college? Will you be able to go on family trips? Does this house need repairs or much in need of updates, will you need lots of new furniture for this home? Just thinking of things we did and didn't think of when we went from previous house to a much bigger house. We did have to wait on a lot of things.
