I'm always reading comments that say, "I changed careers to make it easier to be home more often." I want to know specifics. If you've made a change, what was your previous job, and what is the current one?

Anyone do a flex schedule from 6:30 to 3:30? (I'm sure someone will say yes!) Does it work for you? What are the best and worst things about it? I'm considering it.

Do you schedule many playdates for your kids?
Answered on 9th July 2012:
Not regularly. Since they're in school (or in summer, at camps) I feel like they sometimes need downtime and/or alone-time. I will say that a well-timed playdate is very helpful, however, when the school gives a random student-day-off! I can work from home while the kids entertain themselves!

I have been there, too, although I didn't get a year off before sending my kids to daycare. You were lucky! It's so, so hard to adjust to working again. I can also relate to not even liking your job anymore -- I totally felt that way. Because I had found a BETTER job -- being a MOM! rewarding! fulfilling! Not like my desk job which just felt like drudgery. :( Let me tell you, even though the job market is crummy, it might be worth it to change jobs if you can find something you might like better. I was so lucky that an opportunity came to me when my baby was 1 -- the work is more fulfilling and closer to home/daycare. I still feel like it's work, but it's not AS bad. Think about it. I will be praying for you. It's a very hard time and sometimes you'll cry - it's normal - but you will make it through and your baby will be FINE. (hope the cough gets better) ((((hugs))))
