It's hard. In my experience, the "best deals" working from home are the ones where you work somewhere first and then get to work from home. Is there a specific reason that you want to work from home? Commute? Flexible hours? I will say that while WFH is great, it's pretty lonely too. There's no break room or stopping by to say hi to people. If you are a people person (I'm not and I still think it's lonely) it would be tough.
I also think that working from home takes more discipline than going into an office because there are so many more distractions than you'd think. I just wanted to get the other side of the coin, since people tend to think it's awesome and don't know about the flip side.View Thread
I'm not a big Easter candy person. DH loves jelly beans, and this is the only time of year we can find different brands. I hate Peeps so very much. Give me a Snickers or Butterfinger in a pastel wrapper and I'm a happy camper.View Thread
It depends a lot on what you do. Is your current job something you can do from home? I don't know the circumstances or what you're really looking for, so it's sort of hard to say.
I WFH and have since 2008, but I also started in an office. My company was very supportive that I move a lot because of DH's job, so I'm able to keep my job now when we move. That said, DD is also in daycare, because WFH with a small child is VERY difficult.
A lot of sales jobs are telecommute friendly, I know there are jobs that people accept incoming phone calls as well. Contract work is another possibility, like editing or graphic design.View Thread

March Madness has hit our household, so there will be a lot of basketball going on here. The weather is supposed to be really nice so I'd like to go for a hike or do something outdoors. I'm going to get a pedicure and drive up to the "big city" and get DD some sandals.View Thread
I also wanted to add that you are a good mom. You saw a problem, listened to your child, and took action. You reinforced to your DD that she can come to you and that you'll listen to her. You might not see it as a big deal, but it's admirable.View Thread
I'm so glad your DH is coming around and got to see what you saw. The school you're bringing them to sounds a lot like the one DD goes to.
As for giving notice, if you feel like they are unprofessional enough to treat your LOs badly, I would do the bare minimum for them. Otherwise, when it comes to the day-to-day stuff, it'll probably just be business as usual. If the director know why you're leaving, will the teacher know? Maybe you could ask the director to be vague if the teacher wants to know why you're leaving? If it were me, I'd give two weeks notice as required, and then about a week before take LOs to visit the center.View Thread
