    I was just offered a middle school position at a charter school. It is a center based classroom. I should be jumping for joy but I am sad that I will have to leave my baby ( 6 weeks old) at a daycare. When I was laid off all I wanted was another position because I couldn't see myself as a stay at home mom. Now I feel differently, unfortunately, we do need the money so I don't have a choice. The job I really wanted I came in second place for :( and another job I really want closes on the 13th. Sorry if it seems like I'm ungrateful, I am very happy that in this economy I will have a job but I had gotten use to the idea of staying home.

    I don't think you seem ungrateful one bit. My goodness, you have a 6 week old baby so it's kind of expected that you're going to rethink your decision. Like you said though, you thought you couldn't be a stay at home mother, but now you're thinking you don't want to not be a stay at home mother. It's the whole the grass is always greener on the other side thing. I go through it all the time with decisions.

    I am about to have a baby and wish I could stay home. We are in debt up to our eyeballs, so I have to go to work. Good luck with new job.

    Congrats!

    And on the being ungrateful - I completely get it. I was offered a maternity leave position but I'm not as excited as I should be; I'm still looking for a permanent position.

    I've been home w/ my youngest (who is now 3) since birth. It's the same feeling, I'm afraid, whether your child is 6 weeks or 3 years (I've done it both ways, now having 3 children). So, be grateful you have a job- I was nervous I wouldn't get back into the district and just totally enjoy your time when you're w/ your baby! It's like I'm "nesting" right now, trying to get all the other stuff out of the way so my time spent home when I'm done working is just that- time at home! Good luck- I'll be crying the first day back right with you!

    Just remember you do have holidays and summers to spend with your little one. I know it is not the same... but it is better than 9 to 5!:)
