    I’m familiar with your situation as I have taught college. I am also on the job market and am preparing to move. I say apply for all of the above. With the move and the availibility of academic jobs, it may be hard to find something right away.

    I voted for the 2nd choice (hands-on instructing) because it sounds like it’s what you’d enjoy the most. I also think it would be a nice balance between being at home with your son and being out in the “real world”.

    Well it sounds like you will be happiest with #2, it provides a nice middle ground.  I would personally do #3.. same pay as #2 and I like sitting around the house LoL, plus you don’t need to put your son into a day care.  I wouldn’t worry too much about resume enhancement; everything is experience in my opinion.

    I would go with either #2 or #3 as a fellow military spouse. 🙂  

    I’ve found that with Darling Husband being in and the unpredictability, it may be nice for you to have more flexibility (option #2) or something that could travel with you should you PCS again (option #3).  

    If it were me, I would go with #3 in order to just have something that would travel with me the next time we moved, however, depending on your circumstances, that may not be an issue for you.  

    Could you possibly work from a Starbucks or Panera type place at some points during the week, just to get out of the house?  You could also look into having your son in daycare part time in order to establish a more ‘formal’ routine or just have some time to yourself.  I’ve heard from friends that working from home with a child is still just as demanding as having a child and commuting to an office.
