Now that I have two girls, my goal is to learn more about parenting and household management, that includes budgeting and keeping up with the things needed in the household.
I know that going full time at work is not a very wise decision when you have a 6 month old baby to nurse and taken care of, but a practical one I believe. Though my husband provides well, the thought of losing his job scares me a lot. You’ll never know what’s going to happen next. It’s always a good practice to have a back up whether you need it or not.
Downside: I always miss the development of my kids. I don’t get to bathe them. I don’t get to feed each meal. I don’t get to comfort them when they badly need me. I don’t get to watch them closely as they run around the yard.
Sad but sacrifices help a lot at times.
