My dd is a month old, and I'm torn. My whole pregnancy, I couldn't wait to start a career, as a graduated with my BA I'm August. Now that she is here, I don't know.
A job I had applied for in the past contacted me this morning to set up an interview. It's a dream job! One I've been wanting for awhile (they kept my resume on file). My DH and I decide did I ger this job, he will quit and stay home with the kids while I work. We don't want them in daycare, as we had a bad experience with ds.
It all seems perfect but I feel I may be leaving dd to soon, but it's a job I want so bad. I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place! What would you ladies do? Anyone been in a similar situation?

True, I'm so paranoid. It's causing anxiety issues for me.

 No I have not. But I'd imagine it would be a lot easier for you to work now because your husband will be home with them, not a daycare. That would make the choice a little easier for me.

Upside at least they are with one of their parents. The job may not always be there.

You'll probably regret it if you don't do it.

Dream jobs don't come around everday. This might be your chance. There are a lot of parents that have to go back to work 6 weeks or so after their baby is born. Not ideal, but that's life.

This is true! Daycare was a horrible experience for us. My son would come home with bruises that they never could explain! We also had a doctors note of things my son is allergic to, one being apples, and not once, but twice did they "accidentally" give him apples and we had to get him to the ER after his epi pen. I'm just not wanting to chamce it again!!

 I'd take the job. She'll be in good hands with her daddy.
