Thanks again for responses. I'm definetely leaning towards parttime, especially
since I'm planning not to dip into investments but rather still contribute to them.
I feel this time could be well spent with my kids, my wife, hobbies, etc...
My wife sacrificed her career as elementary schoolteacher to raise our kids for 10 years, a choice neither of us regrets!! But she is ready to go back just as I'm
ready to scale back. I always said I wished we could both work parttime concurrently (about 25 hours/wk each) but it never added up without benefits.
I guess 15years fulltime for me followed by 10-15 years for her is next best
(doable) choice for us. Plus she was more suited to helping/raising elementary
age kids while I'm a little better suited to help high-school/college age.

I take care of the bills, grocery shopping, etc. so when he's not working, all he has to do is PLAY. Grin
This is my selling point as well, simple girl. My goal is for her to work only and I'll
take care of everything else. In the long run we'll have more enjoyable time
together than if we both worked fulltime simultaneously.
