I sometimes fantasize of not having to go to work and getting to stay home more often or getting the kind of job where I can make my own schedule and call the shots. Staying home full time does not work with my personality or temperment but freelance work (that pays really well :) which allows for a lot of free time sounds nice.

I returned to work when my daughter was 3mo old. I hired my caregiver because we shared similar values, I was adament about breastfeeding exclusively the first 6 months and trusted that she wouldn't sneak anything behind my back. She was extremely reliable, has a strong work ethic and loves children. She loves my daughter and I feel very lucky to have her. She is less than 5 minutes away from my job and I get to see my child during my lunch break. I know her family well and I believe that I am learning a lot from her about parenting.
