To Work or Not To Work

My boss asked me recently if I would still be working after giving birth or if I would be a full time mother. My boss obviously wants to make sure that I would still be available to work for them after my maternity leave. Knowing my boss, he wants to be prepared and hire a replacement if ever.

I told my boss that I would still be working because right now I have no plans of quitting work even after giving birth – maybe because I still don’t find it necessary. There are people who can take care of the baby while I and hubby work.

But the query of my boss got me thinking, if I would really be ready to give up my job if ever the need arises. Maybe I will be a stay at home mom too someday. Or maybe I will just find a new job that would require me to work for fewer hours.

Of course I love to take care of my baby full time and as a homebody; I am sure that I would enjoy it. But I also want to be independent and I love the feeling that I have my own job. Right now, I still can’t figure myself as a stay at home mom. So I’ll just cross the bridge when I get there.

I miss working outside the home and the "freedom" of being childless, but at the end of the day, this is the setup that really makes me happiest. It's different for every person, of course. :)
