I decided not to apply for the management position this time.  Not because I think I can't do it, not because I'm scared (<---I'm such a liar, I'm a little scared), but mostly because I decided my kids still need me in the morning.  That management position would require me to be at the hospital by about 6am, which means I'd have to be up at 4am to get there in time (I live about 45 minutes away.)  That means my kids would be alone in the mornings to get ready for school, which is something my boys are not ready to do.  Missy gets up and out the door on her own.  But I'm still dragging the boys out of bed and having to really "be" with them in the mornings.  I talked to Mr. R about it this morning, and we both decided that any work-out-of-the-house positions will have to wait until Bucket starts high school, which is in less than two years.  I'm comfortable with this; and it's hard to believe MY BABY will be in high school in less than two years!  Wha....

Coding position still on, though.  Besides, I didn't go to school to be a manager anyway, I went to school to be a coder.  I'll stick with that.  Making more money does not make up for knowing my kids are alone in the mornings.  Home first.  Home first ALWAYS.

Sarah, I think you made a good decision. It is good for the kids to have consistency from one parent. Even more important when the other one isn't around very much, imo. You are a good mama :)
