For years now I have been a stay at home mom to 4 children,I guess Im feeling like I want to in away get back out in the work force,I just want to contribute financially,so we are not always pay check to paycheck.I dont have alot of skills outside of being mommy though and cant afford to go back to school,any other mommies going through these obsticles?

I am a stay at home mom as well. At first my husband and I were both working, he during the day and me at night. We did this so all our money would not go into childcare. I grew tired of it quite my job and went to school. Now that I have graduated I just can not see myself outside of the home once again paying half our income for childcare. It is a real delema. I really want to contribute financially to my family but don't want to have to pay someone just to do it. I'll probably go back to working nights again so I can help out. Good luck to you.

Thank you so much I feel the same,but know working nights is out of the question,my husband wants me home when he's home so looks like we will have to be happy with what we have instead.have a great night
