I remember the day I quite my job to become a stay at home mom. I agonized so much over that decision. I felt all the emotions. What if I am a terrible stay at home mom? What if I got bored? Financially would we be ok? What if I never was able to find a job after being home?
Mike's Aunt told me not to worry. She said when the time is right something will work it self out.
So over the summer I was approached about a subbing position at the elementary school that the child attend. I started on the first day of school and have been there since. I work the library as a clerk. I get to see both Evelyn and Jack daily. They come in early with me and stay with me until I finish up my day. It has been great.
I am feeling the struggle of working and feeling like the home projects, like laundry are getting done. We are all busier since I have been working and everyone has had to help out. I think it's going well though.
It has been a transition for sure. I am able to monitor Evelyn and be there for her diabetes care which has been great and of course I love seeing the kids througout the day.
This position is full time until December and I am not sure yet if it will be available after that. I am not totally convinced that working full time is what is right for our family but as of right now I am enjoying the new challenge. I loved being home full time too though.
There is probably not a right answer. Both working and staying home have it's rewards and challenges.
I guess I will just have to see what the future holds...
