So with a baby on the way and an upcoming PCS there are a lot of decisions to be made. As of now we may possibly be moving in May and I would like to be done working sometime on April so I can go home to WI for a bit and then come back to Nc and start packing and getting ready for the move. Truth be told I am ready to be done working
I remember before I was pregnant thinking to myself that once I got pregnant I wouldn't let work suffer. Who was I kidding. I've let it suffer big time though I tried my best not to. But when u work with kids with severe behavioral problems, kids who only want to be picked up or chased around and kids who aren't interested in anything at all I have found my patience is slim and I'm exhausted. Throw in morning sickness and migraines every day and it's a long day. Now don't get me wrong I love my job but I have asked my boss to decrease my hours. My normal work day is 9-6 add to that a 45 commute to work and back along with driving in between kiddos houses daily my work day equals about 10 hours or so. So really I leave the house around 815 and don't get home until 7. So I asked my boss if there was anyway that I can get a replacement for my last kiddo of the day and end my work day at 430. Well no one wants to work late so that never happened. Then yesterday I find out there cutting my afternoon kids. So every day I'll have a break from 12-2. Now I'm sure some of you are wandering why that's a problem. The problem is that my mornings kids live about 30-45 minutes away from my house and the main part of town. So even if I wanted to go home
On my break or go workout I'd still have at least a 30 min drive to town and then a 30 min drive back to see my afternoon kiddos from 230-6. So really it's even more driving on my part, more mileage and gas for the car and I'm still getting home late
Well hubs wasn't too happy about this change in schedule seeing as we need to save up for baby and the move.
So now I feel torn. Do I still drop my late kiddo, which would enable me to have my life back. More time at home at night to relax or do I keep this schedule until I out in my notice
And then I got to thinking about what to do after the baby is born. I had always thought I'd go back to work but I'm leaning towards staying home for awhile. And then when I think about that i think about our bills and my student loans that hubby would be the one responsible paying for and im torn even more. So how did yall make the decision to stay home or go back to work.
Its such a hard one to make!
I am looking forward though to being done with work here, moving and spending lots of quality time with the hubby before baby is born!
