My son is a wonderful baby who is about five months old. He is sweet and very well behaved for his age. My mother-in-law has been a fantastic help. She is a wonderful person. I teach full-time and went back to work for about six weeks at the end of the school year. Thankfully, I had the summer off with the baby. Going forward-- I just feel a bit torn. I feel guilty having my mother-in-law help while I'm at work. Even though she has flexibility in her schedule, I feel bad to hold her back. At the same time, I am in the process right now of hiring help but of course the expenses of childcare scare me. Even working with my masters degree, I feel like I'm paying someone else about as much money as I make in a day to watch the baby.
So just had to vent somewhere with my concerns. If you have any feedback or thoughts, I would greatly appreciate it.
