clicky poll - what are your work plans

Re: clicky poll - what are your work plans

  • I'm so jealous of all the SAHM's! I'm not sure what will happen yet, but I am really hoping I can stay home most of the time. I doubt it, but I'm hoping!

  • I am out of here so fast they will see me run out the door as a flash and not know what happened. I can't WAIT to be a SAHM! :)

  • I really wish we could afford for me to just work part time/reduced hours.  I'd love to be there when my son got home from school and enjoy the baby more.

    But, unless my DH gets a big (much deserved) raise...I'll be working.  Or we can move to NC to be with his elderly parents, but I'd be away from all of my family :(

  • I was a SAHM for a year with my son then went back for a school year so we could get pregnant again (I'm a teacher.)  I loved being at home and missed it at the start of this year.  It was hard starting up again and leaving LO at home, even though I was leaving him with my mom!
  • i work FT. i simply cannot be a SAHM. it's freaking hard.
  • I'm going back FT.  I love my job and have a great work/life balance.  But, I will probably go PT in a year or so when 2 of the 3 are in elementary school. Fortunately their school gets out late, so if I start my day earlier and leave earlier, I won't be missing much at all.

  • I Didnt vote- I will be working outside the house 3 days in and in the house 2 days.

  • my plan as of right now is to stay at home and also take classes part time to finish up my masters degree.

    Mom to 3 wonderful girls:
    Eva, born on 1/2/11
    Celia and Lily, born on 5/17/13
  • I will be working full time outside the home but not until LO is over a year old.  I am a law student and I'm taking a semester off after the baby is born and then will be going back to school full time when the baby is about 8 months old.  I will be in school for four months, then studying for the bar for 2 months, and then I will be going to work full time (hopefully - IF I get a law job!)

    Married to DH since 6/30/2007

  • I *have* to work FT, much rather be SAH though.

  • I voted SAHM, but it will be H that will be home 4/5 days/week.  I'll work from home the remaining day/week.
  • I already work from home full-time, but am reallllly crossing my fingers that I'll be able to get the raise I want on a contract I'm renewing w/a client next week. If I do, I can afford to work part-time instead next year. Until the LO shows up, though, I'm going workaholic to save up as much as possible, just in case!

    He's growing up, but he'll always be my baby!


    ...big brother to...???? Due March 2014!

  • I was working up until 2 weeks ago. DH wants me to stay home with our 19 month old now and get him used to being home with me! And plus I am High Risk and DH(god love him) does not want me at my job. :)

    It has been good so far. DS is adjusting to not being at school just fine. So am I!

  • I wish I could go PT but it would be a very tight budget. I will be working FT. I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts though so I only work 3 day a week (technically barely under full time but it is considered full time nonetheless). DH also works 12 hour shifts so I will be working my schedule around his so we won't have a need for daycare.

  • It's going to be tricky at first. I'm a nurse who works night shift. Not quite sure how it's going to work out. I think I have a mom and MIL that would be eager to help out though! I long to be a SAHM, but not feasible for the next few years. The good thing about hospital shifts is I only work 3 nights a week!
  • I always feel like the weirdo in these posts because I couldn't wait to get back to work after DS was born. I love him more than anything, but am not cut out to be a SAHM at all.

    DD#2 lost in January 2012 at 23 weeks due to anhydramnios caused by a placental abruption
  • I voted for working FT but would love love love to be a SAHM.  I'm jealous of all you SAHM's.  Maybe we'll win the lotto.  A girl can dream right?
