Well, fast forward to today. I traveled, tried the more extensive career track, got married, and had a baby. Now, I just saw that they are hiring for my old position again. My daughter is 17 months old, I get benefits from Dh's job, we are planning to stay put for quite awhile, and right now in my life this job would be perfect for me. Should I apply again? How can I explain myself to them and have them reconsider me?
How much do they know about why you left? How many years ago was it? I'd maybe play down the wanting to travel part (unless you know they'd think that was cool...), and play up that at the time you needed something full time with benefits, and then explain that now you would be the perfect candidate because you would need minimal training, and you are now in a position where part time with no benefits works just fine for you. Talk about how you loved the position and were very sad to have to leave it, and how grateful you are to be able to work for the company again, etc...

Do you still know anyone there? I'd call your old manager or HR or someone and say that you'd love to apply for the job and you'll be sending in your resume. That way they know to be looking for it.
