See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Hi ladies. I'm in a quandary and I just don't know what to do. I am currently 5.5 months pregnant with my first child and I work part-time as a college instructor. Our baby was unplanned but is very much loved and wanted. I just found out that both full-time professors in my topic area are retiring this summer and the college is looking to hire a new full-timer. And I believe they're looking at me to take the position! I'm so excited by the prospect, after all, full-time teaching jobs are rare and hard to get. Plus the pay would be great, especially for someone like me that has been paid near minimum wage my whole working life. However, I'd have to start less than a month after giving birth. How can I decide? What is it like to work full-time and care for a newborn? How do you manage breastfeeding? Is the stress even remotely manageable? Please give me your honest opinions no matter what they are or tell me about your personal experiences.
