I have been a SAHM for a little over 2 years. While my hubby was stationed at our last base I worked full time for 3 months after our first was born. He was in daycare but then I got pregnant again and only worked around my husbands schedule, so part time. After our second son I, once we were temporarily moved home, I worked minimal part time, again when my husband was home to watch them. I thought being a SAHM was ideal for them. My oldest is now 28 months and drives me up the wall. He is more active than the "average" toddler, already been told he has ADD tendencies (gets it from me), but his testing my patience is wearing. Dad is back at a job 1000+ miles away and we aren't moving to be with him for another 6 weeks. Typically my parents would watch my oldest or both my kids for the day so I could get a break. My gramma is however, dying and has alzheimers on top of her being in the last stages of life. So my parents have been living at my grandparents caring for them. All my friends live hours away. Any local friends and fam I have also have little ones, so I feel guilty asking for a break.
But lately I have felt when we move I am going to go back to work, part time would be ideal. And not worry about their adjusting to daycare, because they will adjust. Did anyone find themselves a better parent after returning to work?
