Looking for advice. I have 3 kids, ages 5, 3, and 1. I presently work full-time Monday through Friday 7:30 - 4:00pm with a 45 minute commute to and from work. I like my job, but I get "kid-sick" so bad sometimes that I can barely breath. My husband works full-time but has Lupus with kidney involvement which could flare up at any minute so full-time work is my reality. I am presently interviewing for a position that is 3 twelve hour shifts (could include weekends) and only a 15 minute commute. The work would be challenging but rewarding. Since it's a new job, it will be mentally exhausting and no doubt will be physically exhausting. I would be leaving my "comfort zone" of my current position, but the thought of 4 days home with my babies sounds amazing. The shift would be 9 am - 9 pm so for the those 3 days I would barely see my kiddos. Childcare is not an issue. DH is supportive either way. Any thoughts?
Not sure how to update a post. The initial info on the position was misleading. Full-time is considered 14 shifts/month. I am staying at my current position for now and focussing on the positives. Thanks for everyone's input, I really appreciate it!
