Well, I've actually been thinking about increasing my time at work to include a half-day on Tuesdays. Currently I work half-days on M,W,TH,F and am off on Tuesdays. It's kind of odd to be off on a Tuesday. I never seem to get much done. I usually spend money that I don't need to spend because I want to do something fun. Rarely do I enjoy spending the whole day at home.
The pluses to working on tuesday:
1.Kole will be going to preschool 5 days a week from 8-1 (which he loves on M,W,F). Sometimes I think I don't like how his routine is so random. Usually he goes to school mondays, home with mommy on tuesdays, school wednesdays, nanna's house on thursdays, school on friday. If I work on tuesdays I can afford to send him all 5 days.
2. More productive at work. Right now I feel like I'm not getting everything done that needs to be done. (I'm the only one who works on nutrition)
3. Obvious reason but last, more $.
The minuses to working on tuesday:
1. Lose the only day at home I have. It's rarely a productive day anyway.
2. Will be nowhere closer to being a stay-at-mom. But for now that's not really an option anyway.
I'm so torn. What do I do? Help please. On to the second question. Would I be a bad mom if I made Kalli ride the bus home from school???? I've always wanted to be the mom that drops off and picks up from school. But it's not all it's cracked up to be and she's been wanting to ride the bus. It's just that I've always had this idea in my head of how I wanted her school days to go. I'm finding that the small things like that just don't matter that much. I'm so indecicive if you can't tell. I need some input.
