I'm a stay at home mom and have been for 5 years. (Since my oldest was born) and my SO gave me the option at the time and still does. But I'm getting bored of just being home all day. I love being a mother and staying home!! I want to look for a part-time job... Just so I can have my own thing going on... *-* I need it. I'm just worried I won't adjust to being away from my kids. I know there are many working mothers out there. Is it easy? I went to school and graduated and it's time to put that to good use. Any advice? Thank you..!!!

 How old are your kids? Do they go to school? If so, you could try to find a job with hours that are during the school period, and that way you'd only be working when they're at school, and you'd be off by the time school's out. Then it'd be easy to adjust. :)

I have been back at work for a week. My son is one. We do have a nanny so it may be a bit easier for me but it was still a little sad at times. Especially the 2 days I had to stay late at work and didnt get to put him to sleep. But you will get through it. It's good for them to see you work. And gain a little independence

I think this is a perfect solution.  Good luck.

If your kids are in school, I don't think you'll have too much of a problem switching to part time. I think it will be very helpful for you and give you some time away from the house.

Just make sure to find something that has hours while your kids are in school so that you are there when they leave and when the come home.

You will go through and adjustment period but ti will be okay. It's easier when they are a little older. I had to go back to work when DS was only 7 weeks and it's very hard leaving your newborn.

It's hard at first, but then it becomes okay. Until
Your kid is sick then you hate the thought of going to work.

Not to sound terrible but I was a SAHM for a while and work is my outlet I have to work of go crazy.

I work fulltime now....i cant say sahm is easier or harder, they both present challenges. When my older 2 were lil I was able to wrk partime, the money sucked but it was a great outlet ...tho any job is a job and has potential to get on ur nerves at times for various reasons

 I'm a full time working- full time single mom. I make it work! Just think of it as a break for yourself :)

My oldest is 5 and my youngest is 2.5 y/o. I really do want to get a job and be more independent. I really need too. Finding a sitter is not an issue, but I think just being away from my boys is my biggest problem *-*
