I took such a decision three years ago.
After 10 years as a high-end graphics programmer, (Softimage) and the last 3
of those 10 years were as a Microsoft software engineer, I quit when I got
my first born. Now a mom-at-home, and spending time as the webmaster for
TheForce.net for fun.
I have never regretted my decision. Big salary left behind, but you know
what? It wasn't worth the stress, especially with children in the equation.
We welcomed Anne-Marie into the family 2 months ago too ;-)
