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.
