I put other...
I have several jobs besides being the full time mama to my 3 boys ages 6.5, 4.5, and almost 2 and wife to a dh w/ physical disabilities.
I have been nannyig 2 girls for 9 years. They are ages 9.5 and almost 13. They have been at my last 2 births and plan to be at this one as well so I will literally be working right through birth
W/ each one of my boys I was working my reg. schedule w/ the girls w/in 1 wk of birth. Now that they are older that really just consists of of after school p-ups and some evening care. They are really tons of help though so it isn't bad.
My other job is more complicated. I own my own baby equipment rental company (www.travelintotsrentals
. com). I have been doing it for 4 years. I rent all kinds of equipment such as cribs, high chairs, car seats, strollers, amby hammock, co sleepers, pack and plays, toys, toddler beds, etc. I deliver the items for families that are traveling here on vacation. Our busiest time of the year is from Thanksgiving to New years. I am due somewhere from the 20th of dec. to 25th. Not sure of my dates exactly. W/ ds 3 I worked right up until labor and then had dh do deliveries until ds3 was about 5 days old then I took over again. I was taking phone orders w/in 12 hours after his birth (from bed). I had a major melt down yesterday and just don't think that I am going to be able to do that this time. I have major preggo brain and am making silly mistakes. Nothing serious but I hate looking like an idiot
I have a call into my sil to see if she can take over this weekend until mid jan. and am waiting to hear back from her. I sure hope that works out. I feel I am just a tad over extended right now.
It is interesting to see how many working mamas we have in this ddc and how varied the jobs are.
