Quoting I♡C.:" I stayed home with Christopher for the first two years and went to work for the first time when he was ... [snip!] ... felt "isolated" than to be at work because I miss him everyday I am at work...it isn't worth the whole "socialization" factor."
Quoting Vivian [♥]:" It was worth it too me. I ended up working too much, so I cut down and found the perfect balance of ... [snip!] ... and being home with DD. It was a lot harder to enjoy my time with her when I was a SAHM from being so depressed all the time."I guess it depends on the whole factor of how much socialization does the mama really need?
