Anyone else WOHM but ambivalent? - Page 2

post #21 of 22
There are lots of NC mamas on here (maybe not WOHMs). I don't see many SC mamas, which is a litte frustrating, but a topic for another day!

I was having this discussion with a co-worker today, and neither of us are really reconciled to this whole WOH thing, but we know it has to be done. We are grateful our kids are with someone(s) they love and trust (DH in my case, a great daycare in hers) but both of us wish we could be home with them instead.

Of all people, I can have this conversation mostly straightforwardly with my boss. She has enough vacation at this point that she can sort of build some balance in, but not really, since whether she's there or not, she has to solve the problems. I don't have the years in, so I became a per diem employee. It's the least guilt-inducing, most able to dial-up-or-down arrangement we could come up with.

The trouble I have with FT WOHM friends is that we can never get our schedules to match up. We could be virtual soul mates, but between work and home demands, there's not enough free time for the wiggle room to plan and get together. But I do have some mom friends who are less than 40 hours at their work/studies, and it is nice to feel understood.
