Are you on maternity leave? Back to work? Working part-time or full-time? SAHM? Working from home? Something else?

I am not technically on maternity leave anymore, I am a teacher so I am on summer vacation. I will actually be going back to work at the end of the month.

This is my 3rd week back- I was back to full time the last week of June. I'm grateful though that my company offers flexible work arrangements, so I work from home Tues and Fri. Tues I have both kids until the hubs comes home midday to lend a hand. Fri is just Ingrid until DH is home at 3:30ish.

SAHM over here. Though I am keeping my eyes open for something part time. My ideal would be this little shop in town, I would be able to take R with me. But they have no openings right now.

I went back to work at 4 weeks pp for the end of school year just to find out my position had been cut. I'm off for the summer while looking for another teaching position. I've had 3 interviews so right now I'm just waiting.

My job is not a regular real job, but I've been back since probably 3 or so weeks pp, both kids go with me, which has good & bad points, and it's 6 hours 4 or 5 days/week I'm going to try as hard as I can not to go back to a regular nursing job for as long as I can, at least until the baby's older. I'm really excited that starting in August I'm going to be a Thirty-one consultant too. I really want it to go well & I'm going to try to work hard at it. (Who wants to have a catalog or online party?! Let me know! Lol)

I started back the week of July 1st at 24 hours. I don't have any less duties than when I was full-time so I'm trying to squeeze it all in. I had taken 11 weeks by that point. I took my 12th week to go on vacation last week. I wish I could be a SAHM, but hubby's career isn't a big money-maker, which I have known all along.
