Dreaming of SAHM...

Posted by: MissMommaMandy on Mon Jan 9, 2012

I have a 5 year old boy, and a 2 year old boy. I work part time, always have- and felt like that was where I needed to be. I've struggled recently to find a good day care, with some one I trust to watch them. I constantly worry about them while I'm working, I grill my 5 year old to tell me every detail of his day to make sure they're getting taken care of. I cant afford top of the line day care, so why am I working? I feel like I'm sacrificing my childrens youth by having a job. All of a sudden I've had a revalation that I need to be with my kids. I'm thinking I'm going to wrap up some finances this year, get pregnant with my last child (hopefully a girl!) and quit my job after my maternity leave ends. I've kept this job for so long for insurance. And its offered through my husbands job too we've just never used it. So here I go 2012... I'm bringing you a new baby and the job I've always truly wanted at heart.! But does any one think I'm silly to think the only way to quit my job is if I have 3 kids?! I just dont think having a job is realistic when I'll have to pay some one to watch 3 kids. Obviously I've discovered that having two is doable... lol.
