If you work for someone else, you don't relaly leave it all home at the end of the day .. you have your life/responsibilities Plus their needs.Staying at home and being Mom is a totally worthy way of life and as satisfying as any big deal job. In this case, in my opinion, it is not the Job but the Person .. some people need more challenge, more praise, more structure , more company .. There is no perfect solution, whichever you choose, you always wonder if the Other would have been better.Wait til the difficulties pass, then see if you feel the same way.The weekend is almost here, that makes things brighter !
