My husband and I had just had our second baby and my maternity leave was winding down. The months I had for maternity leave dwindled down to weeks and I was feeling the same nausea-inducing anxiety about leaving my babies to go back to work as I did the first time around. This time was different, though. My husband was at a job where he was making better money than he did with our first baby, and this time our childcare expenses were going to be twice as much. Couple that with the fact that my commute was an hour long which meant even more time away with my children and an outrageous gas bill, and I began to seriously doubt whether it made sense for me to return to work as I had originally planned; even if it was a job I loved.
