No brainer to me. I'd opt for the family life over the individual parent taking care of the kids to keep them from a sitter.

I haven't decided at all yet, because DH really thought I was going to say 100% keep things the way they are. So I've just been bringing up some of the points I was thinking about (and those shared here). He is going to look into finding out if he could work afternoons on "preschool day."
DH is one of those guys (which is great and not so great at the same time) who thinks that his sole purpose for living is to work his butt off and put in 100% of his time into making the absolute best life for his kids (and me but mostly the kids) possible. He is not happy about pulling Josh out of preschool or spending the extra money on the sitters. He never, ever goes and does things by himself or with friends. He would rather go out in the yard and get that done, etc. He is warming up to the idea though of having that family time at night.

see - and while noble to be the martyr, it is incredibly unhealthy.

Well, what we ended up doing is that Mike will work days every day but the preschool day. That day he'll work afternoons. He starts Monday! Thanks ladies!!!
