As a teacher being due in June, I will probably be able to finish out this school year. I would love to be able to stay home with LO, and not return to work in September. I really do not like my job, and today especially I began to really second guess if I want to return. Long story short, I have hall duty during dismissal, and a fight started and one of the students was pushed into me. I was not hurt, it just scared me more than anything.
So the way I see it, I have 3 options:
1. Take the 12 weeks FMLA and return to work later in the fall.
2. Stay at home and watch an additional child, but I would have to make between $400-$450/week in order for DH and I to make it work.
3. Stay at home and watch 2 additional children, which would probably bring in the income I need. I have been a nanny for 3 kids before, and I did love it. But I know it would not be the same with 2 children and my own.
Any thoughts or insight would be appreciated, as I truly have no idea what route to take.
