To quit my job or not

DAWN - posted on 03/01/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I've worked at an amazing job for the past four years. I have three kiddos, the youngest being 20 months. I've made a decision to quit my job so I could be home with my kids. I told my bosses yesterday and they do not want me to leave. I know in 5 years I'll look back and think this was the dumbest decision I've made. But one thing I'll never get back is watching my kiddos grow and being able to do things with them on no school days. It's a pretty good paying job, but daycare takes up over half my check during the school year and all but 50 in the summer. I stay because they people are amazing to work for. To supplement income if I do quit would be to watch 3 additional children full time. I've weighed the pros and cons, but I'd love advice from you guys.

It's really only a decision you can make.
You are right that you only get 1 chance to watch your children grow up though.
It's one of the toughest things about being a woman. A man doesn't have to give up his career or even make that tough decision.
