I understand what you are going through and I feel the same way at times. But what I have found that has been amazing for our family is a home based business. I work out at the gym in the mornings while she is at the gym childcare. Home for nap & lunch. The rest of the day I can meet friends/business partners for coffee appointments, errands, & play dates. I can e-mail, make calls, & do webinars during her naps (twice a day). You make your own hours, when & how long to work.You can really make a full time income working 5-10 hours a week & spend so much time with your child, while socializing at a childcare & with other moms with children. I love my life & wouldn't change a thing. Although, this is what works for me. You may have to try a few things to see what works for you & your family. I hope you find this helpful & that you find the balance you are looking for! : )

NO...things have a way of working it self out...Dont make emotional decisions! We all feel like quitting when it gets tense, but take the time and look at all possibilities of your situation and make the best decision according to that! Ask your husbands input, because staying home, financially is straining especially for a man! Sounds good, but is it the best thing for all involved! Hope it all works out for you and your family!

it kind of all depends. i had to go back 2 work with all of my kids. i would have chosen to stay home if that would have been an option. it depends how much u want to keep your job and if u can afford 2 stay home. besides, if u have a care provider u trust completely and loves your child, and you are completely happy with them, the 3 month old will be happy either way, youll always be her mommy, and shell always know lthat.
