Don’t stay at home:
1) if you miss work
2) for guilt

Wait for the right opportunity that is financially beneficial (does it allow you to pay for childcare that makes your mind at-ease? Does the culture respect people with families and allow some flexibility?).

Not crazy. You'll figure out what works for you. I have a 1 yo and 3 yo. Went back after 4 months with my first and decided to go freelance/ do my own thing after the second. Things will constantly evolve.

My company is transitioning from wfh back to the office, but everyone returning to the office is supposed to be vaccinated.
