I had a heart to heart talk with my husband last night about all that I was worrying about in regards to getting a part-time job, and having a young child. Today I picked up the babysitters’s list in our neighbourhood and there are 50% fewer babysitters on it in comparison to last year.
He is helping me slow down, calm down, relax and said that he would help me find a babysitter before I find a job. I was trying to do it the other way around.
Now I’m wondering if we’re going to find anyone with little availability. You’d think with a recession that more women would want to babysit.
Just having my husband help me work through this is picking up my mood.
I was feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and I don’t feel like asking the same babysitters on the list if they will look after my daughter when I get a job because they’ve said no to me before. So my husband is going to call and talk to the babysitter we really want. How nice is that?
