Are you a SAHM? 

What is you job if you are not?

How much leave did you take after having your baby?

I am a senior teller for a bank, full time.
I was a teacher when DS was born; I took the last 2 months of the school year off; summer I was obviously home; I decided to change my career because I was no longer happy teaching. So I got to spend the first 8 months of DS's life at home with him. :)

I was in retail management before having my son. And with my husbands work schedule and to cost of daycare it was just better for me to stay home. Eventually I would love to go back to work but not until my kids are much older.

I'm a SAHM for now, I'm in the process of looking for a part time job right now. Just like 15 hours a week would be perfect. Before I had did I ran an after school program for elementary school kids.

I just saw a program about daycare cost. Something like $14,000 a year or something per kid.

Maybe a lunch monitor or bus aide?

I'm a SAHM. I was a secretary but quit because it was a crappy Job and dh gave me the go-ahead. Two weeks later I was pregnant. I have no plans to go back, and now we're planning for baby number two!

It has to be after 2 pm when my mom gets off work. She'll babysit for free and that's really only way going back to work will work for me. I'm thinking about applying at boys and girls club, I worked there for awhile when I was in college.
