Going Back To Work

The time has come for me to get a job. I have not been in the workforce for seven years, but we have come to the point where we need more income. My husband works two jobs so I can stay home, this was a priority for us. I went back to work part-time when Tyler was 3 months old. My dad helped us for the overlap between my hours and my husband’s but this did not work out. I started an in-home daycare so I could stay home. I did this for four years and along the way I received my BA in history. When I started graduate school the kids I was watching started school and we decided to end the business. It is a tough job and (for me) my house did not feel like my home anymore. So here we are a couple of years later and I am in my final class. I would LOVE to find something where I can work from home! I want to help my family financially, but my heart aches thinking about not being here for my little ones. I love being a stay at home mom and taking care of the kids. I love taking care of our home and I feel that I am good at it. However, the reality is we need more money and it is time for me to go to work. Right now, I am applying to be a substitute teacher to get some income coming in sooner rather than later. Life is always changing and we have to change with it.
