Work has been just awful, and I don't know what to do about it.
Physically, I can handle it, but emotionally, I'm about at the end of my ropes. All I care about in the end is that I have 2 healthy babies, and I'm beginning to worry that the stress might affect them.
I still don't know what I'm going to do afterwards.
My heart says that there is NO way I'm going to be able to return.
My brain can't figure out a way to make that work. The idea of giving up my entire income scares me half to death...I know that we would make it work, money isn't everything, but I just can't get past the whole having NO income thing.
Not to mention the giving up a 12 year career and the benefits that come with that.
Yet, I don't love my job.
That's the crazy part.
You would think that would make it easier to make a decision. I thought it would. It's almost made it worse.
I always said I was a better mom because I worked.
M. and I worked opposite schedules for years to limit her daycare hours, and we could do that again. I would miss the adult interaction, but I suppose I could find that somewhere else.
I just don't know what to do.
I really don't think I'll be able to decide until the little ones are here, and I'm forced to make a choice.
So, anyone out there a stay at home mom? A work part time mom?
How did you make the transition? How did you finally decide?
Any great tips on saving money?
