Just thought I'd throw in my two ecnts... I am a stay at home mom of four(ages 5,4,2, and 1). We live barely off of my husvband salary and for most of the time i was working part time in the evenings. I will be going to the part time evening program(so I can stay home with my kids during the day)... and, god willing, will graduate in four years... and(if i pass the bar) will be starting to work as my youngest begins kindergarten. I left law school when I became preg with my oldest and am finally going back. My family will always come first.... so I hope to work in a gov job or any firm big/small.... that allows part time or is family friendly.... My husband works in the computer industry which is still weak... and this is my way of ensuring that if something happens to him that we can stay afloat... and a way for us, hopefully if all stays well, to finally be able to afford a house of our own. I am scared about the balancing of it all... but I am hopeful that it will work out. I am glad to see that there are other mommies(mommies to be) out there who are struggling with the same issues..... Thanks for starting this post!
