So as I have posted before, I recently was laid off from my job, which I was working remotely from home since March 2012. They gave me a severance package through the first week of February, but after that we are down to one income. It's my fiancee, me, our 2 year old daughter, a dog and a cat.
I had given my resume to a girl at my fiancee's work - different building and department - whose department does have people working from home. After reading it thought I would be a "perfect fit" for another department, and forwarded my resume to them (they also have a few people working from home). My fiancee sent me a text earlier saying that the new department is "very interested" but the type of work I would be doing would require that I work in the office every day, rather than at home.
I'm thrilled at the thought of having a second income for our family again, but I am torn at having to put our daughter back in daycare. She has made such big progress being at home with me on a daily basis - getting the one on one interaction - that I'm afraid she may regress when we put her back in daycare.
I know it is good for her to have interaction with other kids her age and learn how to share, play in a group, etc - but I'm really torn. I hate the idea that we will once again be paying someone else to "raise" our daughter. The job is an hour from home, so she would be in daycare 10 - 10.5 hours a day.
I'm sitting here typing this and wishing I hadn't already done my workout for the day.....
