I am starting to feel a little depressed about how much time I can stay at home with my first baby due in March.
At the moment with the morgage repayments and living costs my husband and I rely so much on both our incomes. We both have great jobs in the Public Service and no if we continue on this path we be financially better of in years to come.
The issue is I can only take 10 months off when the baby comes. If I could financially I would love to be a stay at home mum that's my dream job. But if I took that option we would have to sell our house we worked so hard for and rent.
I have coped alot of stuff of my supposedly good firend who has a 12 month old baby and who is still living with her parents. Not once did I judge her all I did was support her in that decsion, now I am being told that Parents who put their children in childcare full time should not have children!
Am I a bad mother for choosing to go back to work and be able to keep our home and provide a better life for my children????
