Full time, Part time or Casual Work Status
I am trying to figure out if I should change my status at work from Full~time to Part~time for Gabriella's sake. I personally have a lot of mixed feeling about sending my child to day care. I am not completely fond of day cares. I think I am more scared than anything, plus I do not want my kid to come home all the time with a cold or a sickness. I guess I want to protect her as much as I can. I know I can't protect her, her whole life, but I want to at least try to limit sickness that she has. I guess sending my child to child care has me envisioning that she will be in a play pen all day by herself and no one will pay her any attention. That would completely break my heart. I know we are OVERLY PROTECTIVE, I just tried so hard to get her here, and I personally want to keep her here. Eventually I want to go casual status at work where I can pick and choose my hours and no on call. We are looking into individual health plans. The insurance is really good and it would less than I will be paying being part time at my job through my group plan. The only catch is that it does not cover maternity. Will I have another baby, I am not sure. I husband says, "NO", he is completely satisfied with Gabriella.....The only question is....am I. A few years back I would have said one is plenty, now I think Gabriella may need a playmate. Who knows what direction our life will go. I guess for now, I am just happy being a family of three. We are blessed, we are happy and we are content.
