  • I'm a portrait studio manager, probably going back in September or October, working 30 to 36 hrs per week.

  • I am a debt maker.. aka in college. My major is Nuclear Engineering with Chemical Engineering minor. I took a year off.. and now have to transfer schools and they don't offer Nuclear. So I am planning on switching to a program which allows me to complete 3 years at the college near me and 2 years at WVU or Virginia Tech, they automatically give me a Physics minor if I complete.. my major will be Petroleum and Gas Engineering and I am trying to also get another engineering minor.

    If all that works out, I am going Officer route in the Marines. When that is all said and done, I want to work in Research and Development somewhere. If my husband is still not on board with me joining.. which he isn't.. but it has always been my dream.. then I will be his boss at the company where he drills. I just don't know how long this oil and gas money will last...

  • I am a mortgage lender for a regional bank, so its 8-5 mon-fri.  My husband is a firefighter, so with his rotating schedule we have LO in daycare 2-3 days/wk, I think its a really good mix of socializing and daddy time:)

  • I'm an Accound Director at a PR/Advertising agency. I go back to work Aug, 5. My babysitter who has been watching my DS1 for 3 yrs, and was going to take DS2 as well, has developed some health concerns and let me know a week ago that she can't take them as much as she wants to. We're all sad. So I'm spending my last few weeks scrambling to find daycare or a nanny and have 1-2 interviews set up each day this week. It's a wee bit stressful, and I'm hoping to keep my cool through it all. Lots of changes.

  • I'm a Group Health Benefits Advocate, I coordinate & maintain health insurance & disability for companies. I work part time now every day of the week with the exception of Tuesday & I make my own hours somewhere between 8a-6p. I'll go back full time probably at the end of summer due to all the upcoming changes with Obamacare so I'll be very busy. I'm blessed because my job is very flexible as long as I show up to my Open Enrollment meetings & meetings with the carriers. LO is in daycare 2 days a week & I bring him with mr on Fridays for now.

  • I am nurse. I currently work 3 12 hour shifts. 7 pm to 7 am. The baby's father watches him when I am working.
  • I'm a deputy district attorney. I go back full time at the end if August. I won't be able to go part time because I have a couple of important trials right when I get back. Luckily my mom just retired, is moving in and will be full time care until LO turns one. I'm too paranoid to send her to daycare because of my job.

    Right now I work in a bakery and cashier part time at a small grocery store chain in Washington. I am currently taking a hiatus from school till LO is about 6 months old and then I will go back. I am working on my BA in nursing. I work 3-4 days a week at random times usually 9 hour shifts. My DH watches DD for the most part because we work opposite shifts. If he can't for some reason my mom will.

    Lawyer at a small litigation firm. Right now I work from about 830 to 530 5 days a week and take work home with me a few nights a week. I have been able to avoid working weekends so far since number two arrived.

    Both kids are in home day cares, but different ones until DS turns two and his provider has an infant opening. Can't wait to only have one drop off and one pick up, and have both kids with a provider I really like! The one where DD is going right now seems to be over feeding her... My DD only nurses 3 times a day at home and takes at least two naps. At daycare they are giving her 4 bottles a day and only one long nap. I'm having a hard time pumping enough!

  • I'm an account exec for a major hotel chain. I technically work from home, 8-5 but really I leave the house most days to see clients and hours are...whenever someone needs something. Including weekends. Both kids go to daycare full time.
