I am a 30 year old Christian, wife and stay-at-home mother. My husband, Russell, and I were married in 2004 and we welcomed our daughter, Chloe Jo, in 2009. My days are filled with laundry, crafting, cleaning, My Little Pony and family time. Life hasn't turned out exactly how I had pictured it, but I wouldn't change it for anything. Grab a coffee, sit down and enjoy my very blessed life.

My Boss and Questions
My boss asked me this morning if I had started looking at daycare facilities yet. I haven't. She then told me that I need to start because they need me here. I'm in the process of bidding off on a job in a different department and if I got that job then I wouldn't be here anyway. I haven't told her that I'm bidding on anything. I'll get there eventually. Anyway, back to the daycare thing. I don't want my baby being raised by a daycare. I worked in daycare and I know what kind of influence children can get from other children whose parents don't have the same values that I do. And let's be realistic. That is what is going to happen. You may have 4 or 5 hours a day and weekends of good quality time with your child. The daycare has them for 8 to 9 hours a day. Plus, on weekends you are sleeping through the night so that time is out...we'll say 6 hours. Meaning you only get around 61 hours of time with your infant and daycare is getting around 45 hours of time with your infant. Too much in my opinion. Russ is frantically (ok, that's an exaggeration) searching for a job that can support all three of us so I can stay home with the baby. I didn't mention that small tidbit to my boss because I don't know if it's going to work out. But, the question did get my brain turning and and an effect of the cause, got my fingers typing. I don't know what is going to happen. If Russ could get a job that could support all of us, that would be ideal, but I'm also open to him getting a full time preaching position. Either one is good with me as long as I get to raise my baby and no one else does.
