I am currently on FMLA from my teaching position and I now have to come to a decision if I should return to work or stay home. Currently I believe that the best decision is for me to stay home with my 3 girls ages 3, 15 months and 3 months. Have any of you had to make this decision? How did you cope with it and what made you decide to stay home? Any advice???? PLEASE

I have always been a SAHM.

i have been home for almost 3 mos after working as a hospital head cook for 11 yrs. I had no choice. No childcare forced me to quit. Along with this being my last baby. You just gotta go with the reality part of it. If your financially able to then stay hom if you want. Its hard for us working moms. Thats all we know. The world of work outside the home

Do you have a choice to stay home with the girls?  If you's the best thing in the world.

Now if you want to work a liitle from home, make some extra income and stay home....we can talk....that's what I do and am loving it!

Hi there... Yep, Yep.. You have a full time job honey... You are a Mom with three little ones.. STAY at HOME... Trust me girlie.... Been there, done that.. I walked away from a State job with full benefits, retirement, etc... to RAISE my babies.. BEST decision my husband and I ever made... I am now 40 honey... Old enough to tell ya, it goes fast... I have one in college, and my youngest is in junior high... Being a stay at home mom IS a full time job... and just in case you are worried about the money, Don't be... God will provide.... PLUS.. I make more money working a job from home than I did in the work force... Email me directly.. I will show you how..

It's nice that you have the option.
After I got off my FMLA I had to go back .
