 I would take the job. The way the economy is and every one is loosing their jobs I would not decline any job that's offered!

Depends on whether or not your family needs the money, if it pays enough to offset the cost of a sitter, etc, and whether or not YOU want to go back to work. Hate to use an old word, but PHOOEY on whether or not HE thinks you need to work. YOU work your a$$ off as a SAHM and he should learn to appreciate that instead of whining that you don't have a job.

Nope wouldnt do it. The pay isnt good for that much stress. I would get a part time job & tell him, i do have a job. why dont u try babysitting for ppl during the day? i mean, that is if that fits u. if nto then i would go for a part time job.
