When our first child was born we had just moved to San Francisco and since child care was so expensive out there along with everything else I was more than happy to stay home with my new baby exploring our new home. Fast forward to the present, we now are living in Madison, have 2 kiddos and truth be told I’m itching for a change. I never have been a working mom and I’m curious to know how it would change the dynamics of our family. Would I enjoy it more than staying at home? Would I be a better mom and wife with the satisfaction of working on something that brings me passion and I can help the family financially? What would it all involve for me to go back to work?
And so I started leisurely looking for a job and not shortly after I applied for a position I was asked to come in for an interview. Oh $#*!! Here’s the thing, the idea of going back to work is great and all, but to make that happen, there was a lot of variables to consider if I wanted to transition from being a stay at home mom to working outside of the home. So I thought I’d share my thoughts with you and tips I got from really smart friends along the way.
