I just had my first child and will probably take a break from the working world for a few years. I've been a planner for the past 10 years and I'm nervous about leaving the profession for a while. Have any of you folks done this and were you able to pick up where you left off in terms of responsibilities and salary? Also, do you have any advice on how to maintain connections in the profession while being a stay at home parent?
I know that being at home right now is the best thing for my child, but I don't want my mind to go stale while I change diapers and sing lullabyes all day.
