our store director asked dh today if we would be interested in me taking over one of the departments..... it's one of the gm departments so I would be in familiar territory (I use to be the assistant manager over all the general merch departments at another store in the same chain as we are at now before we had kids) I'm just not sure. Trevor told him we had to think about it because we weren't sure we wanted to put the boys in daycare or not. 

I think I will go talk to him and just see what the raise would be and hours and etc.... I also thought about asking if I could do regular time instead of full time (4 days a week instead of 5). I know he is trying to crunch hours the store needs to function so I think he would be happy to do that and I would still have 3 days off a week.

The kicker is going to be what pay would really be after daycare.... and if it's worth it to our family.

It's sorta a double edged sword with Tristian. If the money is better after daycare then what I'm making now then that would really help with his medical bills.... but more time away isn't ideal obviously. I don't really know where his medical issues are leading right now. He's still not growing (48 months old, average height of a 27 month old) they did the tests again (they've done them when he was just starting to drop off on growing but everything looked normal then) and this time they came back with low growth hormone, low celiac iga serum and some other things too low and too high. I am going to talk to the growth specialist friday about it. His lungs had been getting worse again, but we just got him on a new medication regime yesterday... so hopefully that starts to get better again.

Trace is still mostly ebf (he eats some finger foods, but not much) so that's a concern also.....

Just gotta think it over and figure it out.
