When talking about a sahp going back to work, what I find mind boggling is that people don't think about it realistically. Someone still have to be available to the kids before school, after school, 2 weeks in Dec, 1 week in April, and upto 2.5 months in the summer. I have yet to meet a mom who works a good paying job she enjoys with "school" hours and have it flexible enough to take time off for sick days etc. And even with this dream job you are not involved in your childs school day at all. Then when the kids are older, and having teen sex or drugs, or who knows what when parents are too busy working to pay attention, these same people then say how you aren't a good parent because you don't spend enough time with your kids. Sure any extra money is a value to the family, but al what cost to the family life?
