Oh, I know it would be a tough decision....financially, emotionally and otherwise. There truly are pro's and con's to both situations, but I really feel that if you are able to stay home with your littles, you should. My goal is to have a baby and QUIT MY JOB!!!! I think being a mom is the most important job, but for now, it's just not doable. My husband just started his career, and I have to work until he makes a little more money....*sigh* I mean, I really like my job, but I hate feeling like someone else gets more QT with my girl than I do. It's torture. However, i don't think SAHM's and WOHM's should battle against eachother....and I don't resent ANYONE who gets to raise there children full time.
And Mel, I didn't take your statement that way at all....I guess I just have a lot of guilt these days because I don't get to be with Kenzie as much as I use to...as much as I WANT to...as much as she needs me to, you know? And thanks for the applause - it was a rough road...but, you'll just have to buy the book because no thread could contain all of hurdles noodle and i overcame....(; But it was well worth every part.
So, JENNIE - is Jai a five day a weeker, or three days a week? Is she loving it? Making friends? How is the potty party going? any more accidents at school? don't worry about too much about it. Sounds like she's adjusting REALLY well to the big change, and YOU are doing a GREAT JOB sharing (: ~ I always hate sharing my noodle too.... (: It's good that Jai is doing this now - to kind of enter her into big girlhood before the baby gets here...I think it will really help her feel like a BIG SISTER, rather than being jealous that she is not the baby anymore. (hopefully, right?)
Well, keep me updated!
