Re: Should I stay home?

Oh mama! I don't have any advice for you, just a .

I can relate to some of what you're feeling. I'm 37 wks pg w/#2 and would love to spend the whole summer (and beyond, the way I feel right now) home with her, but circumstances have conspired to make that an impossible dream if we don't want to plunge ourselves into ridiculous debt (DH is finishing grad school, a time-consuming, but not particularly lucrative endeavor, and so far doesn't have any income coming in over the summer and I'm still too new at my job to have much vacation built up to get me beyond the 4 wks of disability pay I'll be able to collect for maternity leave).

Meanwhile, I'm burning the candle at both ends working full time and trying to keep the household from falling in around me, feeling like I have no time for my family or, heaven forbid, myself. It sucks. I wish there was an easy answer.
