I want everyone to go ahead and tell me how horrible I am so I can justify cutting back to part time even though our budget will totally suffer. As it stands with the drive I see my child for the drive to daycare and then for 2 hours before bed Mon-Fri. Then Sunday's she is in Sunday School and nursery for 2 hours. I see her 28 hours awake the daycare... 50 total! It's not fair! She's mine and I want to see her!Dh wants me to keep working full time because it would mean us moving to a smaller apt and giving up cable and stuff. What do you think? I'm right aren't I?Answer Question

I cant imagine having to deal with that decision. The little boy I care for is with me more than he is with his mom and I feel horrible about it. It doesn't seem to bother her though. I watch him 5 days a week and honestly on my days off she'll ask if he can stay the night I couldn't imagine not seeing my baby, or not wanting to spend the free time I have with her.

I'd go without whatever I had to, just to keep my kid at home with me. I'm lucky that I was able to do that, but the reality is that some poeple just cannot. It's tough, it really is. For me, I knew that I was not going to work after I had a baby. Hubby agreed. Some situations are beyond our control, but I would not have had a baby if I had to put him in daycare and work. That, for me, doesn't make sense.
