Hey mommas!! I'm looking for some advice from other moms who work longs shifts..
Here's my dilemma. I'm a full time RN. I work 3 twelve hours day shifts each week. My husband is a corporate pilot. He is on call for 12 days, hard off for 3 days. During the on call times he has to be ready to fly out within an hour. We live in Kansas City, MO right smack dab in the city, so many daycare options are a 20-30 minute drive in the wrong direction. Both our families are from different towns at least 3 hours away. I've considered going PT or PRN at work.. If I go PT everything I make would go straight to pay for daycare. Plus, we would be paying for 4-5 days of daycare per week and really only be using 2 days per week, so it's kind of a waste of moolah. If I go PRN I lose insurance benefits and my husband's insurance doesn't provide great coverage. We just feel pretty stuck.
So I'm just seeking some thoughts/advice from families that have dealt with similar situations. I'm currently 23 weeks pregnant so we have a little time. Baby will be here in January!!
