IMO, parents should do what would make them happiest and if that is going back to work then that's what I think you should do. Happy parents make a Happy baby IMO.

Go with your heart! Good luck whatever you decide!

Quite agree HellyBelly, my view about work is that you should always do something you enjoy.

If having been a SAHM for a while you are not enjoying it, then look at what else you can do to fill your day. Childcare costs can be a pain but you need to look after your best interests as well as your children's and for you to be doing something other then looking after them 24/7, may well be best all round.

SAHP's have many skills which employers may find of interest. With 4 children your organisational skills are bound to be great... you work well under stress... you multi-task... you can quickly adapt to changing needs... you are IT literate (as you are posting on here) etc.

Think about all the skills you have and then find a job which would use many of those skills which you would enjoy.

Personally, I went from doing Sales & Marketing to working with children. I enjoy my job a lot more these days and am far less stressed, just a pity it doesn't pay as well but I cope... money isn't everything.

Good luck, get lots of free advice, plenty out there for parents returning to work.

Go for it.It'll be a break after being home with four kids lol!
I gave up work last April and have been sahm ever since. Doing a bit of freelancing this summer and it is great fun.
I'm ready to think about not spending 24/24 with my darling children!
