Okay, for the past several weeks I have contemplated going back to work full time. Only a couple of weeks before I gave birth to Judah I received that dreadful layoff notice from my job. It really caught me off guard as I was planning to return to work after 6 weeks of being at home with my little one.
Well as life would have it things did not turn out the way that I had planned them. Figure that. For starters I didn’t plan on having Judah so soon. After he was born I knew that the likelihood of me returning to work so soon was probably out of the question. Fast forward almost a year and a half and I find myself here… torn.
There is the working mom part of me that is ready to get back to work and have really conversations over real lunch. don’t get me wrong, I LOVE being home with Judah. I love waking up to his sweet babbles and sweet smiles in the morning and I love kissing and loving on him all day long. But then there is a part of me that feels bad that there is not a class room full of kids to play with (which he loves by the way) and that there is no other kids around to get into trouble with.
For the past several days I have been pouring over day care centers. Looking through ratings and comments to try and find the perfect one.
What do you do? I wish there were two of me….
