I currently work a normal 9-5 job and have my 4.5 month old daughter in daycare. It's a good job and a great daycare, but I really miss my little girl so much. And this just isn't the life that I want for her.
I am thinking of switching to a healthcare job and working the 3rd shift (11p - 7a) so that I can be there for her during the day. She is an extremely great sleeper both at night and for her naps. For her naps, she doesn't nap on any sort of schedule but if i lay down next to her I can generally convince her to sleep for 2-3hrs.
Would this work? Does anyone do this? Do you all have any advice?
It makes me nervous to quit a good job but I just don't want her growing up in daycare. Not to mention, that I just never get to see her at all. (I commute in and we're gone from home from 6:30 in the morning until 6:30 at night).
Thanks in advance!
