My daughter Alexxa was born in October. I was very fortunate to be able to take 3 months off with full pay from my job. But it went by way faster than I expected and I went back to work at the beginning of January. I only work 3 and a half days a week, but I still feel like I miss out on a lot.
I feel like I didn't really have much of a choice in the matter. I provide a good chunk of our family's income, and if I wasn't working we would barely be keeping our heads above water. How do other moms do it? Any tips and tricks to save money so staying home might be more of a possiblility? Going to work is killing me and I feel like I'm not doing a good job at work because I clearly don't want to be there. Help! I'm miserable!
