So I heard about the maternity leave today. Thank goodness! 12 weeks (2 paid--10 unpaid). I can use vacation time (which I barely have) and can't use sick time. Then, I can talk with my direct boss about "additional" leave (I'd like to go PT until Feb. 1--making Black baby 6 months.) Granted, I'd like to go PT forever, but the hubs is fiscally responsible doesn't think this is the best idea. He said it could happen, but we couldn't live the live to which we have become accustomed.
I'm like... what life? Currently we live the gypsy lifestyle. In that case, from what I heard, gypsies eat kids and then we don't really have to worry about childcare and I could just work PT and be employed as our house keeper. Granted, this lady doesn't look like she's eaten many kids. Maybe I'm mixing this up with the witch in Hansel and Gretel. Whatever. She should eat more donuts.
