Daycare soon

I go back to work in September. Today I called our daycare to be, and made arrangements to stop by on Friday and get paperwork. I am sad about this but also happy- I am not great at being a full time stay at home mom, and I miss my work. But I’m going to miss Aglet too. Who else is going to feed me Cheerios and bite me and then cackle uproariously? If I could do work halftime and stay at home halftime, that’d be awesome.

Here he is, just waking up from a nap, brutally assaulted by the red eye guard my flash on my phone has.

  1. It’s too bad you can’t do half time. They of course have to give you the same time off that they would for someone who had a bio baby. When I brought the kiddo home I was able to work part time and stretch that 6 months out much longer.

  2. I get that. I love my sons, but lord God I love my job and it is my escape from kids 24/7. I would be lost without my work!

  3. I was very lucky. For quite a while, I worked 2 days & 1 night, ~25-28 hrs avg. And my employer paid 100% of the family’s health insurance. Later, on a job with 24/7 coverage, we (my team) each had 1 day/wk we worked from home unless there was a crisis. You might be able to work a little something out – even just leaving early makes a difference…
