One thing you should be aware of if you are considering working from home is that it can be very lonely. 
When you work outside the home you generally have co-workers.  Other people you can talk to when you there is a lull in the workday or people you run into around the water cooler, in the breakroom etc. 
When you work at home you are all by yourself.  Oh you probably have little ones running around but they really don't care how your day is going.  It is tough to share a bad day with a three year old.
It is important that you build a network of support.  Find people you can talk to throughout the day. 
Make time to take a break and call a friend or family member.  It will help relieve the doldrums and it will just make you feel like you are connected to the outside world. 
Take the time to find other moms you can connect with or just get out of the house for a cup of coffee once in awhile.  Invite people over now and then. 
It is also important that you make time for your spouse.  Set aside an evening every couple of days or at least once a week when you can connect and feel like you are part of something other than a keyboard.
