So I applied for a job a couple months ago, interviewed just a couple days before I delivered my son. They offered me the job to start after a 6 week maternity leave. My husband is a union carpenter and was out of work so I was given no choice but to return to work asap. He has landed a pretty good job now just 2 weeks before I am suppose to go back to work and he says I can stay home with the kids (newborn and 2 1/2). But the job I was offered is 5 minutes from my house, part time and more money than I was making before. I havent been able to find a job any closer than 45 minutes away in the 5 years Ive been working in the medical field. I dont want to be a sahm forever or even until they go to school. I am thinking the first year or a little less. I am afraid of not being able to find such a great opportunity again and I dont want to give it up because I really love working but my son is just sooooo young and I dont want him in daycare yet.
Should I go back to work or should I stay home for a couple more months?
