I have one daughter and she will start school next year. I don't know if I will go back to work or not. I like being able to pick her up from school and run her to other activities but then again I think I may like to work part-time. She will be going to school out of our school district and so someone will always have to take & pick her up. My hubby likes me being home & told me that I didn't have to go back to work. But last night he made the comment that "it was going to be my job" to take care of her and and run her to her activities just like I always have until she is able to drive and take her. He works hard and travels alot so I am the main care taker. But I didn't like that comment! What did you do?Answer Question

I still have 2 at home (3 in school full time) but I have no intentions of going back into the workforce when my youngest starts school (which will be in 5 years). By then I will have not worked for over 15 years. I'll be "retired" from the constant mom stuff then, lol. I'll actually have 6 or so solid hours to myself to do the things I want and/or do things alone with my husband. We're both looking forward to it. It would have been next year but we ended up having another baby this summer.
And, yeah, I would have been ticked if my husband said tsomething like that. Men don't get out of helping with the kids just because they work. That's bull. If he's home when there's an activity there's nothing wrong with him doing the running around for once.
