Unfortunately, at the moment Greg being the sole breadwinner is not an option for us. Yet when we found out I was pregnant, we still decided that I should quit my job. The plan was for me to start a daycare a month or so after Palmer was born so that I could stay home with him and still bring in some money. It was the only solution we could think of that would provide a secure income and that I would be able to do with an infant at home. As a bonus, I really like kids, and usually they like me. I thought it'd be a piece of cake. After I had Palmer I was pretty shocked at how hard it was to just take care of him and we stalled starting my at home business. Well, no more stalling. Today was the day I had scheduled to start tending children.
Honestly, it wasn't so bad. I don't know why I got myself so worked up and was dreading it so much. I only had two additional kids today; more are scheduled to start in a few weeks. And I must say it is easier just having to take care of Palmer, but I handled it. I am tired, but I'm always tired at the end of the day with Palmer, might as well add a few more kids in the tow, help out some of my friends and make a little money.
It may not sound like much to all of you out there. Truly I didn't think it would be a big deal before I had our child (I should have been a bit tipped off when I told my fellow mother friends of my plans to start one month postpartum and they laughed at me. What can I say; I am just a little stubborn). But, I am proud of myself. The kids, Palmer and I survived the day! Wish me luck tomorrow.
