School&Work&Baby

I’m due on May 22nd…which is right around the corner to me. I’m still working at my normal full time job until I hit 36 weeks. I’m thinking of quitting that job when it’s time to go back. The travel and the stress for this job position is just not for me anymore, especially with a new baby! I’ve asked multiple times for a transfer to a closer store located right around the corner from my home. But for some reason they don’t want to let me go. It’s like if I leave that location, that is 1 hour away from home, the store is going to fall apart. Well, my husband has his own business with a friend. Their business is growing and expanding and need more workers. I’m already on the list for them when they need the help. So, I’m thinking of staying home and working for my husband from home when the baby come. I’d be doing job estimates, invoices, ordering supplies, billing and other office management duties. Which is what I’m doing now but for a corporation. I’d love to stay home with our new baby and work from home. All in all, I’d be working only a few hours a day and I wouldn’t have to leave the house or my baby! At the same time, my husband is so encouraging, that he wants me to go back to school to pursue what I’ve always wanted to do. So, I also just recently reenrolled in online classes for the medical field. My goal, hopefully, is to be done with school by this time next year. That way I can get a better job in doing what I love to do. But at the same time, I still want to be a stay at home mom and just work from home helping my husband with his business.

So, in a shorter less confusing way, within the next couple of months….I will be quitting my current job, I am enrolled in online classes, I will become a first time mother, and I’ll be helping my husband with his business. Am I crazy? Can I actually pull off having a new baby, while working and going to school? If other woman out there can do it, then why can’t I?

Preschool

So I’m not due till May 22nd. But I’ve heard that for some preschools, there’s a waiting list to get in and that you should get on the list or atleast apply to the school before the baby arrives. And I was shocked to find out that preschools can start for your child as early as two and a half years old and as long as baby is potty trained. This is amazing! I’m over here thinking that preschool doesn’t start until the child is 4 or 5 years old! I was planning on staying home all the way until baby goes to preschool. So now that I know it starts as early as 2.5 years old and potty trained, I’m so relieved. I wasn’t sure on how finances would be with just my husband working. 

I’ve done my research, or really asked around. And I’m going to be sending my child to our churches preschool and elementary school. My husband and I feel it’s the best move for our child if we want our child growing up knowing and loving the Lord, as we do. 💒🙏🏽📖
