I really want to be home with my kids (2 and 4) full time. The problem is that we have debt we're working on paying off and we've become accustomed to my income-- I make good money and it more than covers our childcare expenses...its about 40% of our household income. Have any of you made the transition? What did you do to prepare? Have you found a way to keep your foot in the door somewhere (my current employer will not be interested in that arrangement)? Or if you've continued working FT what have you done to be more available for your family? At the end of my days I have nothing left. Thanks in advance for your advice!
