My kids are 1 and 3. I've been working part-time since my oldest was 3-months old and have recently left my agency job (underpaid/overstressed) to branch out on my own. I know I did the right thing leaving my agency job, but right now I'm struggling so much with the changes and being the primary parent + starting my own business.

I'm starting to daydream about leaving my job altogether to be a SAHM until my kids are in Kindergarten. I'm afraid of the financial toll, taking my 3-year old out of his daycare (it's $$) and getting back into the workforce after 4 years, but this work/home balance thing is getting to me!

What are your experiences deciding to SAH or keep working?
