Hi, I'm Melanie. I always knew that I wanted to be a mother and have a career, but I was worried about how I would balance everything.
They say you can't have it all. So when my leave after having my first child was up and I needed to go back to work, I was worried. Would he be okay without me? Would I be okay at my job? In the end, it all balanced out.
I now work only part time so I can spend more time with my kids. Our day care provides our kids with fantastic care and a second family. While this might not be the right thing for every family, it has certainly worked for ours. Here's a blog about all my experiences with day care and other family matters!
