I take my 2, but have just done if off and on for the summer. The longest strech was 5 weeks, then Dh's boss went out of town and he had them at his office.
We both officially feel that 2 is so much more than one. It has been difficult. They are there with Dh for about an hour and with me about 45 min. The boys are 15 mo and 4.5.
I hate to be a downer, and I'm not going to say it can't be done, cause Dh and I are doing it....but if there were days when I thought working and having 1 baby/toddler with me were hard....having 2, these days are more frequent.
What type of setting are your children in when they are with you? Dh and I are both in offices, I have my "own " office at a small agency and he is in a very small office with his boss.
I think that really matters. And how often will they be with you? What does your dd do now while with you?
At these ages my kids don't want to be cooped up. And the most difficult thing really has been my 15 mo old.....that is a difficult age. All he wants to do is sit on my desk and play with EVERYTHING up there :LOL
I think I could have managed better with a newborn and my older DS. The baby would have been in the sling or nursing all the time and I have had more time to then work while keeping the older one busy.
Really, I think there are ways you CAN do it and manage....Like I said, Dh and I do it. We are thankful that we can. I just wanted to be honest with you so that you could prepare yourself. I wouldn't quit just yet. You never know how it will work for you. Maybe you could get some volunteers from the church to help you smooze thse other people??? Or in some other way assist you. Maybe some kids form the church could be mother's helpers for you while you are working?? My saving grace are all my kids aunties at my office. They LOVE going visiting, and my co-workers love the kid breaks!!
Hope that things slow down for you a bit for your birth and baby moon......September is almost here
