I have a 17 month old son and am a full time student in college graduating in May of this year with a BBA in Accounting. I had a part time job as an accounting assistant when my son was 8 months old. I only worked there for 3 months because if was too much stress for me, being a full time mother, and student and employee. Also it was very hard to leave my son. I do not have any family close to me as they are in another country so I would leave him in a daycare. Now that I am almost done with my education I was thinking of going back to work, but I do not know yet.
I do not have to work because my husband can support as financially but I really want to because I love it! Also, I have spent so many years in college and think about my career, I don't want to abandon it because I worked so hard for it;and if I wait until my son starts school, I worry that no one will hire me since it will be a long time out of the work force.
If I don't work, then what could I do in the meantime to not lose my skills and not have to start all over again?
Its such a hard decision to make because I also love being a stay at home mother.
Thank you in Advance!
