New Job

So, I have a new job. Go me! The past almost 5 years I have been a stay at home mom. 

I have had a difficult time finding a job that matched the hours I can work.

My restrictions? I can only work Monday thru Friday and only during the day.

The down side? My husband works nights.

Now, I know this is not unique to my family. There are countless families who have it worse. I respect and admire you all.

My own mother ran a daycare center out of our home when I was a child. 

I worked it out once. If I had to pay for child care I would literally be working to pay for it.

Maybe I would have enough left over for a tank of gas. 

But I found a job and the hours are good. I drop my daughter off at school and my folks gets her after school and take care of her for about an hour to an hour and a half. 

And every day either my husband or I or somethimes even both of us can be with her when she is not with Grammy and Grandpa.

Now if my husband and I can only get a minute together.

    Congrats on the new job. And you are right… your schedule is not unusual at all. My daughter and her family moved in with me a month ago when their landlord sold their rent house out from under them. She works days, he works nights. “Mom and Dad” time practically comes down to literally being scheduled like everything else but it can be done. Good luck!
