Since I was 16 years old, I have always had Some sort of job. I worked in retail after school and weekends and when I finished school I moved out of home and started to build up my career in retail which lead me to management. After 8 years I started to get over it, so I started applying for jobs in the transport and logistics industry. It took me over a year to find a job in the industry and I’ve been lucky with the company that I work for because I was also given a full scholarship to go to uni and get my diploma in logistics.
Just after I finished uni I become pregnant and now I spend all my days caring for my beautiful daughter.
I love being home with her and since she’s been born I’ve only been apart from her for about 2 hours.
She is already 6 months old and I’m worried that I will have to go back to work soon due to finances being really tight.
I have always said that I will never put my kids in child care because I don’t like the idea of someone else bringing up my child. I also don’t want to miss any special moments my daughter will have, like her first words, first step and all those other important moments a lot of working partners do miss.
It’s so hard to decide what to do, and I’m finding it hard to talk to other people about it.
