Well, my plan is to continue to WOH full time after 12 wks paid leave, but I can always cut back to as low as 60% time pretty easily if it seems like too much. I'm currently our primary earner, and although we *could* live pretty well on DH's salary, we're happy to be able to pad our savings, and for me to continue to build my resume. Although my job can be very demanding at times, it has been pretty enjoyable lately, and it can be very flexible in terms of working at home, arranging my own hours to work, taking off whenever I need to, etc., so I'm grateful to have it and not eager to leave it.

WOHM! I stayed at home for nearly 3 years with my first two, and that was great for our life then, but this is better for our life now. There's good and bad. I don't really do SAHMing super well with itty bitty babies, so I'm really relieved to know I'll be getting a break from infant duty most days, but I loooooooove hanging around with toddlers, and am sad I'll be missing so many days with the new one then.
