My SIL gas just made a dash visit after chatting with her prin this evening.
Just quietly there are two jobs going at her school and they are extremely unhappy with the applicants. Cue my name being thrown into the mix.
One is a 6 month job, the other a one month job.
Dd will be 11 months at the commencement. She us still breastfed and a highly attached baby - many joke she is a baby koala because she is always on my hip.
I'm very torn. I love teaching but I don't know if I could leave dd so young.
Thinking of the pros and cons...
Extra money would take stress of df, move forward buying our own house and planning a wedding.
Foot in the door of the school my sons attend. Highly convenient.
Money. This is a huge pro for me. Cannot be stressed enough!
More social interaction.
Leaving a highly attached baby cold turkey
Finding childcare. I can already foresee what a headache it will be.
A lot of my wage will go to cc.
I wanted to ease back into work with casual teaching first.
An opportunity to so easily step into a job may not come up again so soon.
And again, dd. she really is my main concern. I'm feeling sad already- I don't think I am ready to leave her yet.
Working full time with three kids. I barely keep up with the house as it is.
So keeping the pros and cons in mind, what would you do?
