Yes but no. I stayed at home for 10 years with my two and obviously understand having a hubbie that is away a lot of the time. I would say that it's hard enough going back to work without all your money going to a carer/child minder. I think the college course will get you out and meet new people and at least when you go and try and find a job you will have that qualification. The job Market is rubbish at the moment too. Just my thoughts on it anyway
